Students travelling to study at South Cheshire College from September 2017 will receive free transport in a new sustainability scheme.

All 16-19 year old students enrolled on a full-time course will be eligible to access free transport throughout the academic year.

More than 1,500 learners use the College Transport Service, which from September 2017 will continue to run, free of charge.

Mike Finney, director of advice, admissions and marketing, said: “Following the increase in college applications, we are delighted to be able to offer all students studying with us in the next academic year free transport to college.

“It makes studying on one of our range of courses even more accessible.

“After consulting with the college’s Student Council, the feedback received indicated that the cost of transport was in some cases a significant barrier for continuing in education.

“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.”

South Cheshire College has won a “Smarter Ways to Travel” award for previous initiatives of promoting alternative methods of transport as part of their commitment to improving health and wellbeing.

Secure bike shelters have also been installed on the college campus and changing facilities for walkers and cyclists.

South Cheshire College offers a range of A Level and vocational full-time programmes for 16-19 year olds.

The college’s £74 million campus provides training and social facilities for students to aid their learning.
