Lancashire Schools Transport for Main School and Sixth Form Students

Lancashire Bus Services provide some transport services to Clitheroe Royal Grammar School. These are limited in places and you are advised to apply for transport as soon as possible after confirming your place at the school. Priority is given to existing students and then to Year 7 students but the services are often also used by Sixth Form students and will stop at the Sixth Form site. Parents are advised to contact the School Transport Line on 0300 1236738 who will be able to answer all your questions relating to School Bus Services.

For students travelling from Burnley and Pendle the 837 bus service is available from Colne via Nelson, Brierfield, Burnley, Padiham and Read. Places on this service are limited and offered on a first come first served basis. Please contact Customer Services at Burnley and Pendle on 01282 427778 for further information.

We do not operate any of the services to school so are not able to assist with enquiries about ticket allocation. However, we are always happy to pass on any questions or concerns you may have to Safer Travel who monitor school services in Lancashire. You can contact Safer Travel directly on the School Transport Line 0300 1236738.

Public Transport Discounted Ticket Schemes

UGO: Lancashire Buses run a travel scheme for under 19 year olds called UGO. Students do not need to show any identification to get a discount on the full adult fare. Anyone who is under the age of 19 and asks for a UGO ticket (or child fare) can receive reduced price travel, which can be up to 50% discount on full adult fares. However, they reserve the right to ask older looking customers for identification and we recommend that all Sixth Form students apply for a NUS card.

16-25 Railcard: This costs £30 and lasts a year for train travel in the UK. Travelling to a few university open days could mean that the card pays for itself very quickly. For more information go to the website.

Disabled Person’s Railcard: This is available for people receiving the Disability Living Allowance (DLA) higher rate mobility or the higher / middle rate for care. For more information go to the website.

Young Person’s Coachcard: This gives 30% off coach travel in the UK (except on already discounted fares). It is for 16-25 year olds, or full-time students and costs £10 for 1 year or £25 for 3 years. For more information go to the website.
