Free College Coach Services

2021/2022 Academic Year: The Free College Coaches will re-start on Tuesday 31 August 2021.

Students need to book a place on the Free Coach Services once they have been fully enrolled at College. At this time Students can only register their interest in the Free Coach Service and will be contacted to be booked onto the service once the academic year starts. To register your interest please email

Please check back on our website or via our social media page for updates and information about booking a place on the Free Coach.

We realise that getting to and from College may not be very easy for students which is why we have funded the following return coach routes for you:

South Elmsall > Barnsley College (Old Mill Lane campus) (via Hemsworth, Kinsley, Fitzwilliam, Crofton and Ryhill)

Shelley > Barnsley College (Old Mill Lane campus)

Stocksbridge via Penistone > Barnsley College (Old Mill Lane campus)

Old Mill Lane campus > Wigfield Farm (Animal Care/Horticulture)

Kimberworth – Thorpe Hesley – Ecclesfield – Chapeltown – High Green > Barnsley College (Old Mill Lane campus)

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 2021. 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. Please email for further information.

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 campus at the end of the day.
