Free shuttle bus from Poulton-le-Fylde
B&FC runs a FREE circular bus service between Poulton-le-Fylde and our Bispham Campus.
It means that students travelling on bus routes from Lancaster, Preston and Over Wyre can link up with the service in Poulton-le-Fylde and travel for FREE directly to and from the Bispham Campus.
The bus service also stops at Poulton-le-Fylde train station, providing a free direct link to the College from towns served by the rail network, such as Kirkham, Chorley and Preston.
In addition, students who disembark buses at Norcross roundabout can catch the free service there, if they don’t want to walk the remaining distance to College.
