Timetable designed to support your studies 

The bus goes to and from Barnsley Interchange. The timetable is designed to align with our course times and is published at the end of this short news article.

Yultan Mellor, Principal and Chief Executive, explains: 

“We are delighted to announce this new partnership with South Pennine Community Transport to launch our new bus service next year.  

“This discounted bus service will bring students right into our campus for the first time. The timetable is designed with students in mind, to sit alongside our course timetable, and will bring you directly to our front door. 

“This will benefit many of our students who use public transport to come to college, making travel much easier for them at times to suit. It will also support students applying for our new courses from January 2022.”
