Macclesfield College of Further and Higher Education provides a subsidised bus service for full-time 16-18 year old students at a current cost of £300 per academic year (2016/17 cost).
There are 2 different options available depending on where you live:
1. College Service
2. Public Service (eg Arriva)
Please note that where a contract service exists for your home area, this is the only service that the college will subsidise for you. No support is provided for students living within 3 miles of the College.
All transport information is correct for September 2017 - July 2018 at the time of producing, however, routes and pick-up points may be reassessed at any time for operational and efficiency requirements.
For the academic year 2017-18 as part of a pilot scheme the bus pass for the Congleton and Holmes Chapel/Knutsford routes is free. Please be aware it’s free for all other routes for households with income under £25,000. Otherwise the subsidised cost is £300 per year. Payment can be made fully at enrolment or split into 2 payments September (£175) and January (£125).
Payment does not guarantee the right to travel - it is the student's responsibility to apply for a pass. If the student does not have a valid pass they will not be permitted to travel.
