We know that many people who live some distance from Lancaster & Morecambe College would like to study with us. In response to this we offer full-time students (studying 14 hours a week or more) daily return transport on the routes detailed below during term time.
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.
Due to on-going Covid-19 pandemic, anyone using the College bus service will be required to wear a face mask at all times, unless they have a medical exemption. All bus users will have their College ID scanned as they get on/off at LMC so they MUST have this with them to travel.
Under the current guidance, each bus route is treated as a separate "bubble" and, where we receive notification of a positive Covid-19 case from an individual who has used the College bus, we will endeavour to contact everyone from within the "bubble" and inform them of the process for self-isolating. Anyone who travelled on the bus on the same day(s) as an individual who has tested postive must follow government advice and self-isolate.
Even if you don't live on a college bus route, you may still qualify for FREE or discounted travel to college. If you live more than 1.5 miles from College and your household income is below £35,000pa, we will provide you with a Stagecoach bus pass which you can also use at evenings and weekends.
All students who are not eligible for a free bus pass can buy a discounted bus pass from The Hex, (see prices below), these passes can also use at evenings and weekends.

An apprenticeship gave me the opportunity to work and earn while I learn, fast-tracking my career. I knew it would provide me with knowledge and skills needed to progress. Being able to apply my theoretical knowledge gained from the course into real workplace situations has helped me perform better at work and progress faster.
I chose this course because I want to have a career as a joiner.
The course offers individuals many opportunities within a design capacity, and it gives you the chance to learn a range of new skills.
Through completing my course at LMC it allowed me to get the grades to get into university even though I never stuck it out there. But LMC also helped me get the job I’ve got today. My current employers looked at what I had done at college and the experienced I gained there in the sports department.
The tutors and course enabled me to achieve a Level 3 Extended Diploma in Sport qualification. The qualification provided me with a platform to move forward with my education. The staff at LMC supported me with the UCAS application process for my career progression. Tutors and staff also provided additional coaching and assisted me with the relevant skills and qualities required to be successful when working with other people in a sporting environment.
I’d really like to move on to electrics with in motor vehicles, as I’d like to combine working with cars and electrical installation.
