Travelling here couldn’t be easier, even if you don’t live on our doorstep.

The college is on main public bus routes from the Knowsley, St Helens, Liverpool,  Golborne and Leigh areas. We also have a FREE contracted bus service covering Widnes and a FREE service from Westbrook, Warrington, as well as other paid services around the Warrington area.

Bus pass Update – Please make sure you have your e-ticket/bus pass verified and accessible on your phone with effect from Monday 18th September.

The Warrington and Widnes buses will pick up at 4.15pm for the homeward bound journey. This will allow students time to make their way to the stops at the top of the drive.

All Students using the Route 1 Westbrook Service from Warrington

For the next few weeks there will be two Route 1 (Westbrook Services) buses running.  They should be following each other on the route to college, so don’t worry if you do not manage to get on the first bus, there will be a second bus arriving to pick you up.

Verification Codes for the Mayne Transport App

Verification codes will be sent from the Transport Provider to the student’s college email account if they have signed up for a pass on one of the above services. This may take a few days to come through, but please check your college email regularly if you are waiting for this code.

These services are classed as dedicated further education and skills provider transport. No members of the public will be allowed to travel on these services. Click the link for further information and instructions about obtaining your Carmel Contracted Bus Pass
