“Really pleased to be able to support our young people in being able to access the fantastic further education opportunities available to them with the funding.

“Working together with the colleges and the transport providers has meant we are able to ensure that affordable travel is available to ensure our young people, particularly those in the rural communities, are able to get to and from college.”

Mick Lochran, principal, North Lindsey College, added:

“We are really happy that the partnership between North Lincolnshire Council and the colleges continues to offer students an affordable and flexible transport offer for young adults.”
