Free Travel on Armed Forces Day

25 days ago Wed 26th Jun 2019

We will again be supporting Armed Forces Day this year on Saturday 29 June 2019 by giving service personnel, their spouses and children, free travel on all Blackpool Transport Services buses and trams in recognition of their service to Queen and Country.

Jane Cole, Managing Director at Blackpool Transport said “This is just a small way of showing our gratitude to just some of the many military personnel who have worked relentlessly to protect our country over many decades. Not only will all military personnel travel free on our services but so too will their spouses and children. Hopefully, it’ll make it that little bit easier to enjoy everything on offer throughout the day.”

Blackpool’s Armed Forces Week promises an exciting line up of events and entertainment to honour the nation’s military personnel.

The annual celebration has been running in Blackpool since 2006 and has become a permanent fixture in the resort’s event calendar. Events take place from 19th – 25th June. For further information on the week, long celebrations visit www.armedforcesweek.co.uk

Armed Forces Day celebrations and events will this year take place in Stanley Park. You can catch our service 18 (hourly) or our service 20 (every 30 minutes) to the Park Gates from Blackpool Town Centre or plan your journey here.
