Free Bus Service
FREE College Bus Service - Making your life easier
We know that many people who live some distance from Lancaster and Morecambe would like to study at the College. In response to this we are offering 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.
Stagecoach Bus Passes
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 two miles from College and your household income is below £32,000pa, we will provide you with a Stagecoach bus pass which you can also use at evenings and weekends.
If you live less than two miles from College, or your household income is over £32,000pa you can buy a discounted bus pass from the Hex. These are also available to College staff.
