What Support is available?

For all eligible students:

  • On Blackpool Transport - Either  nine one-month All Zone or Central Zone bus passes for £33 each for travel to and from college within the Blackpool, Fleetwood, Thornton-Cleveleys, Bispham, and the Lytham St. Annes area, OR  nine one-month North Zone bus passes for £33 each for students who live Over Wyre (this price includes the cost of a bus from Poulton Centre to College).  For an additional £5 per month a student living Over Wyre can purchase an All Zone bus pass instead of a North Zone pass so that the pass can also be used for social travel throughout the Fylde at any time.
