All aboard for Blackpool’s fabulous new double deckers!

Blackpool Transport's 10 brand new double decker buses are arriving this month, and here's your chance to come along and have an exclusive look before we put them into service on 22nd July 2016!

On Thursday 14th July between 12pm - 6pm, we'll be showcasing one of our fabulous Enviro 400 City vehicles in St John's Square!

We'll have a team of Blackpool Transport experts on hand to answer any questions you may have about our exciting new buses, whilst you get the chance to check out the fantastic features they have to offer. There'll even be a few goodies to give away on the day too!

The buses, which are the first of their kind in the UK outside of London, represent a £2.2m investment, and build on the £1.7m investment made in 10 new buses in 2015. It's our aim at Blackpool Transport to have every one of your buses no older than 5 years by 2020!

These new double deck buses will operate on Service 9/9a which connects Cleveleys to Blackpool and Blackpool Victoria Hospital, with a combined 10 minute frequency Monday – Saturday day time.

Featuring the iconic Palladium branding,the vehicles not only feature a sleek exterior, they also host a variety of added benefits including seats that are trimmed with E-leather and a wood effect flooring. Free WiFi and mobile charging points on the lower deck are also a feature, along with next stop audio announcements.

So make sure YOUR next stop is St John's Square (opposite the Winter Gardens) on the 14th July between 12pm - 6pm, as Blackpool Transport showcases the resort's brand new double deckers!
