Service 6. Our most Blackpool fixated route runs from North to South, between Grange Park and Mereside via the heart of Blackpool. Most users travel on our service 6 to get to the big supermarkets, town or work. But it's more than that, it's actually a community-focused route with a whole host of parks, libraries and points of interest's to visit, such as...

Mereside Park

Starting your journey from Mereside Tesco where you’ll find its superstore, our local Police Headquarters, Matalan and Next. Mereside park is the first green space you'll see on this route, with plenty of flat grass for exercise and dog walks! You won't need to look far to connect to our service 3 or 4 to Cleveleys or catch our 18 to South Shore and town.
