The coach routes are FREE for you if you are a student at Barnsley College, Barnsley College Higher Education or Barnsley Sixth Form College. Barnsley College will be operating a booking system service when students enrol for September 2020. You will need to have a confirmed place to be able to use the coach service as places are limited.

Please contact Student Services for more information on this service or to register your interest. *Please be aware this service is a booking service only.
