Macclesfield College provides a subsidised bus service for full-time 16-18 year old students at a current cost of £300 per academic year (2018/19 cost).

There are 2 different options available depending on where you live:

Public Service (e.g. 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 2020 – July 2021 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 2019-20 the subsidised cost is £300 per year unless the household has an income under £26,000 per year. Payment can be made fully at enrolment or split into 2 payments September (£175) and February (£125)*.
