Air Show Diversions – Saturday 12th & Sunday 13th August
Between Pleasant Street and Central Pier from 12:00 until 17:00 each day.
As Blackpool Air Show takes place over the weekend of 12th – 13th August our buses will divert away from the Promenade between Pleasant Street (Claremont Hotel) to Central Pier.
This is to try and keep buses running on time as the promenade and town centre become extremely congested.
During this period we’ll still be able to use the main town centre bus stops, but we won’t be able to serve the promenade area of the town centre and some nearby bus stops.
The biggest change is to Service 1, which will only run between Fleetwood – Blackpool Town Centre (Dickson Road).
You can view a full list of diversions below.
Service 1 will be curtailed and will run between Fleetwood - Blackpool Town Centre only. Trams will be running a normal service.
