Student Transport

We may be able to offer you FREE transport to and from College if you are a student enrolled on one of our courses.

Transport applications

We have various free buses which operate from designated points around Cumbria, Northumberland and County Durham.  Current routes are constantly being reviewed and new routes being developed during the year so we would advise you to get in touch and let us know where you will be travelling from, so we can assess your individual need. Whatever your transport dilemma, we will try to help you wherever possible.

The Cumbria free College Bus Services operate Monday to Friday and during term times only. All buses drop off and pick up from the college and the return journeys follow the same routes as the inward journey.

The Northumberland and County Durham free College Bus Services is for residential students and operates on a Sunday evening get to college and a Friday evening to get home.
