BARNSLEY College will be running additional temporary coach services for students in the new year following the announcement of an ‘indefinite’ Stagecoach strike.

The additional coaches, privately rented by Yorkshire Rose, will be available for students from Tuesday, January 4, until Friday, January 7.

They will run on a first-come first-served bais from the S71, S72, S73, S74, S75 and S63 postcodes.

A college spokesperson added: “Students should wait at any public transport bus stop on the routes with their lanyard visible so the coaches can stop and collect them.

Please note, the established free coach services will run as normal.”

Full routes for each morning coach service can be found on the Barnsley College website.
