We offer four Free College Bus Services. The bus routes are FREE for you if you are a student at Barnsley College, Barnsley College University Centre or Barnsley Sixth Form College. At this time, the buses are running on a “first-come, first-served” basis and students do not need to book a place to access these services. Each route will operate in the morning in order to get you into College before lessons start and a return service will operate from Old Mill Lane at the end of the day.

The new term starts Monday 2 September 2024.  Your tutor will provide all the details about your induction and timetable when you enrol.
