Palmer’s - Transport

Our Palmer’s Campus is located in Grays just off the A13 and benefits from good transport links.

College Bus Service

In order to make getting to college as easy as possible, we offer a subsidised College Bus Service with pick-ups across Essex.

Although the buses can’t fit perfectly around every student’s timetable, they will ensure that you arrive at college before lessons start and get home after the day’s lessons have finished.

Areas currently served by the College Bus Service are:

  • Basildon
  • Corringham
  • Hornchurch
  • Rainham
  • Stanford-le-Hope
  • Upminster.
