Bus Drivers Vision to Spread Christmas Joy Comes to Life

75 days ago Mon 3rd Dec 2018

Roy Binns Christmas Bus

We've turned one of our Palladium double decker buses into Santa's Sleigh complete with Reindeer!

The idea behind the Christmas Bus has come from our very own bus driver Roy, who wanted to spread some Christmas joy to customers travelling by bus throughout December.

In the past Roy has dressed as Santa during some of his work shifts over the Christmas period and on selected dates throughout December, we will have Santa in the driving seat with his Elves on board to hand out goodies and treats as well as offering £1 travel to and from Blackpool Town Centre.

You’ll be able to spot Blackpool Transport’s Christmas bus running on current routes across the Fylde Coast on the following dates - 

Thursdays between 4pm and 9pm

6th December - Service 7

13th December - Service 11

20th December - Service 5

Sundays between 10am and 4pm

02nd December - Service 6

09th December - Service 9

16th December - Service 14

23rd December - Service 14

If you see Santa and his helper then make sure you grab an 'elfie' and send it in to us on Facebook and Twitter! Be sure to include the tag #christmasbus.
