Subsidised transport costs for North Lindsey College students under new scheme

Students travelling to study at North Lindsey College from September can access discounted transport; includes students living in Lincolnshire and South Yorkshire.

16 to 19-year old students enrolled on a full-time course will be eligible to access transport to and from college for only £30 throughout the full academic year. If students are eligible for financial assistance they could even get the £30 refunded too!

Mick Lochran, Deputy Principal, said: “Following the increase in College applications, we are thrilled to be able to offer all students studying with us full time from September 2017 discounted transport to College.  This is particularly attractive for students who are considering travelling from further afield and is just one of the perks of being a student at North Lindsey College and part of our 20-million-pound investment that benefits students, staff and the local community.

“By removing this barrier, we envisage this service to be very popular and therefore encourage anybody who hasn’t yet applied to do so quickly.”

Customer Service Student, Amy Paul (19) said, “This is a really good price, buses can become expensive if you live out of town.  Some of my friends really struggle with money especially if they don’t have jobs.  This bus pass will really help parents out too as some people rely on family to commute to and from College.”

More than 1,000 learners use bus transport, which from September 2017 will run, at a cost of only £30 a year.
