All students travelling to College by bus are able to purchase a discounted travel pass from our WisePay store.

Financial support is available for free bus passes for low income households.
Those who are Themis Apprentices, and under the age of 19, can access free travel courtesy of Lancashire County Council’s Young People’s Transport Scheme. Please contact a member of the Student Support team, or visit Student Services to collect a form.
