Barnsley College has introduced a free return bus service which will collect students from various areas in Rotherham and north Sheffield.
The bus service has been introduced to give students from outside the district the opportunity to study at Barnsley College without having to worry about the cost of travel.
The bus service will pick up students from Kimberworth, Thorpe Hesley, Ecclesfield, Chapeltown and High Green and at stops within Barnsley in Birdwell and Worsbrough in a morning and return after lessons finish. The new service will operate alongside two current free routes from Stocksbridge, via Penistone, and from Shelley.
The college’s Head of Student Services Louise Simpson said: “We are pleased to be able to offer this new free bus service to the many students from Rotherham and north Sheffield who study with us. This new bus service, along with the existing services from Stocksbridge and Shelley, allows students to study at an outstanding college without travel expenses being a barrier.”
