ROUTE A BUS NOTICE
As of Monday 16th September 2019, there are major roadworks taking place in the Kirkby Town Centre surrounding the Kirkby Train Station. Unfortunately, due to this, the Kirkby Train Station bus stop will be suspended until Spring 2020.

Please allow extra time to reach our alternative bus stops; Kirkby Town Centre Bus Station, Stand 4 or the Falcon Pub on Bewley Drive. Teaching staff have been notified of the roadworks in the case of major delays to your journey to College.

FAZAKERLEY BUS STOP CHANGE:
There is also a slight change to the Fazakerley bus stop. The new stop is now located at Fazakerley Royal British Legion (Sports and Social Club).

Free Dedicated Bus Service

St Helens College has a dedicated, FREE bus service on three key routes, covering Maghull, Kirkby, Leigh, Ashton-in-Makerfield and South Liverpool. To access the free bus service, you will need to show your student ID badge when getting on the bus. This ID badge will be given to you when you come into College to enrol with us.

The free bus will be easy to spot. Just look for a Hatton’s Travel bus or coach, which will be clearly marked with route A, B or C, depending on where you live. The front of the bus will also display ”Free College Bus”.

To access the free bus service, you will need to stand at the designated stop and make it clear to the bus driver that you would like them to stop. Once on the bus, you will need to show your student ID badge to the driver at the time of boarding. You will receive this ID badge when you enrol on your chosen course at St Helens College. You do not need an Arriva bus pass to access the St Helens College bus.
