Mum's Travel Free This Mother's Day

What to do

It's really easy, just board any Blackpool Transport bus or tram and mums travel free with all fare paying child single tickets. Stuck for ideas of where to go? We've got you covered, with lots of different attractions to choose from over on our Things to Do page there's really something for everybody!


Two people must board together and travel to the same destination - one must be an adult female.
The fare payer must be a child aged 5 – 15 years of age.
This offer is only available on child single fares.


Mother's Day Competition **Now Closed**

As we approach Mother’s Day we want to help to celebrate our local mums and all they do to help us.  With 15 new buses due to arrive soon we are giving local sons and daughters the chance to win 15 surprises for their mum during their daily commute.

Blackpool Transport Mother's Day Competition

Our Palladium Promises team will be working hard on the week leading up to Mother’s Day to deliver 5 Bouquets of flowers and chocolates to unsuspecting special mums as they travel aboard our buses and trams! Plus, because we know all mums are special there will be an extra 10 surprises available, with those who get in touch having the chance to win their mum a week’s free travel with us.

Of course on Mother’s Day, in Blackpool Transport tradition – all mums travel free!

To be in with the chance of winning a treat for your mum, simply write to our Blackpool Transport Palladium Promises team at [email protected] and tell us why your mum is the best. For your entry to be considered, we'll need you to tell us:

Your full name:
Your mum's full name:
What your mum's daily commute is (where she travels from & to):

and of course,

Why your mum is the best!

We'll be running this competition until Wednesday the 20th March and mums will be receiving their surprises during the week leading up to Mother's Day beginning on Monday 25th March.

For your entry to be counted, you must enter by email only, sent to [email protected] before the closing date and including the necessary information outlined above in bold.

Winning entries will be notified via email on Thursday 21st March and confirmed arrangements will be made on this date so please keep an eye on your emails.
