FREE College Bus Service - Making your life easier

We know that many people who live some distance from Lancaster & Morecambe College would like to study with us; that's why we offer full-time students (studying 14+ hours a week) daily return transport during term time on the routes detailed below.

Full time students from the Garstang and Galgate area may apply for a free bus pass to use scheduled buses, please ask at Student Services when you have enrolled.

Bus updates

Sedburgh Bus Update - 27 September 2021

Due to road closures on the A683, the LMC Sedburgh bus will be disrupted for 4 weeks, from Monday 27 September. Anyone who gets on the bus at Lay-by Middleton (Fells Inn), Barbon Village or Casterton must go to either Sedbergh (Main St) or Kirkby Lonsdale (The Square)

Covid-19 Updates

Anyone using the College bus service will be required to wear a face mask at all times, unless medically exempt. Each bus route is treated as a separate "bus bubble" in which travellers sign in using College ID. Where we receive notification of a positive Covid-19 case, everyone in the same "bus bubble" will be informed of the process for self-isolating in line with government guidance.
