Concessionary Pass Updates

5 months ago Wed 10th Jun 2020

Using your concessionary pass before 09:30am 

From Monday 15 June holders of concessionary travel passes (including elderly and disabled) will no longer be able to travel for free before 09:30am. If you’re travelling earlier than this, you will need to pay the correct fare. 

As lockdown restrictions are eased, travel before 09:30 will be busier than it has been and the withdrawal of free travel before 09:30 helps to protect more vulnerable customers. By travelling at quieter times, it is easier to socially distance. 

Travelling using a disabled concessionary pass  

From Monday 15 June, holders of Blackpool issued disabled concessionary passes who travel before 09:30am will see an increase to their 50p concessionary rate. To bring Blackpool in line with the rest of Lancashire, the fare will increase to £1 if travelling before 09:30am. 

Holders of Wyre or Fylde concessionary passes will not see a change to their fare which is already £1 before 09:30am. 

Blackpool Transport have no input in this decision and the price is set by your local council.
