College Bus Service


We have provided college transport for a number of years. The bus drops you off outside or very near the college that you are studying at and will collect you at the same point each day. Using the College Bus Service provides you with a safe and direct journey to college with your friends. All of the services are on modern and comfortable coaches and will run every day during term time.

Plan your bus route

To find out which bus service will suit your needs, please download our College Bus Service Brochure from the downloads section. If there are ever any buses cancelled due to bad weather you will find out quickly by visiting your college twitter page @CitySkillsSCC, @EcclesSFCollege, @PendSFCollege, @WorsleyCollege and @FS_MediaCityUK. Please note: Students should ensure that they carry additional money to get public transport should there be any reason why the College Bus Service cannot be used, this may be due to delays because of roadworks or the service not running due to adverse weather conditions. *All students will be required to purchase an annual college bus pass permit at the cost of £20.

Places are limited and will be offered on a first come first served basis once the application date is open. No refunds shall be provided, other than as noted above. For full terms and conditions see the College Bus Service Brochure.
