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.
PLEASE NOTE: DURING NATIONAL LOCKDOWNS, THE LMC BUS SERVICE WILL NOT RUN AS THE MAJORITY OF CLASSES WILL BE DELIVERED ON-LINE. IF YOU NEED TO COME ONTO CAMPUS FOR ANY REASON, YOU MUST SPEAK WITH YOUR TUTOR TO DISCUSS TRANSPORT ARRANGEMENTS.
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.

The 4 years that I spent at LMC really helped me to define what I wanted to do when leaving college. Fitting my education around work and placements allowed me to ensure that I wanted to get a teaching degree to work with children. I have recently completed a 160 hour placement at the college, in which they were eager to ensure that I was able to work with students of all ages/abilities in both theory and practical lessons.
It is very hands on and practical, I’m not very academic and have a very practical way of thinking, so the way this course is run works well for me.
Everything was very helpful for securing employment and it has been very helpful with the content of the training required by British Airways. College helped me build my confidence and helped me decide what I wanted to do. The best bit of the course was meeting like-minded people who were really friendly.
I am proud to be coming to this college and representing this college. I wouldn’t be where I am now without my course tutor Derek, who has helped and supported me through the years. Also I wouldn’t be where I am now without my employer who has helped me to become a better joiner.
The opportunities that I have had for volunteering have been amazing. There has been plenty of chances for me to use the skills that I have accumulated on my course in a real work environment. I also had the chance to go to Bulgaria to coach children which was an amazing experience. I have also had an amazing opportunity to organise a Netball event for primary school children.
The best part of my course has been the placement opportunities, there are so many places in the local area that offer amazing placements and I’ve been lucky enough to work with three separate employers – they have all been brilliant!
