Knowsley Community College Launches New Fazakerley Bus Route
June 14, 2019
Knowsley Community College is excited to announce the launch of a new free bus service, aiming to improve connectivity and make the College more accessible for students who live in the Fazakerley area.
The new route will cover areas including Maghull, Kirkby and Fazakerley, supporting students living in these areas, with their commute to College.
The exclusive, free route will complement the existing support already in place which includes a free Arriva bus pass for the full academic year which can be used during term time, including evenings.
Julia Callaghan, Director of Marketing, Sales and Customer Relations, said, “We undertook research with existing students and new applicants to identify where these routes would be most appropriately placed. We care about our students and their travel times and ease of access is important to us, so the introduction of this new route should alleviate any barriers that are currently faced.”
Julia added, “Our students are discerning customers who take careful consideration when choosing their further education provider. By removing travel barriers, we are enabling students to have more choice when it comes to their next steps after school. Thus, widening the pool of sixth form and college providers that they can choose from.”
The new service has been launched in partnership with family run firm, Hatton’s Travel. The new route launches in September 2019 with bus timetable information available at upcoming enrolment events throughout August.
