Free Bus Service and Student Pass for public transport


We realise that getting to and from College might not be very easy for everyone, so we have funded four free return bus services for our students. They go to and from Barnsley College’s Old Mill Lane campus, which is just a few minutes’ walk from the Sixth Form College site.

These bus routes are completely free for our students and operate on a first come, first served basis. Each route will get students into college in a morning before lessons start and a return service is provided after lessons finish. You can download a timetable from the link on this page.
