Free Return Bus to One Love Manchester Concert with Blackpool Transport

142 Days Ago 2nd Jun

One Love Manchester

We want to make it that little bit easier for you this Sunday. That’s why we’re running a FREE return bus journey from Blackpool to Manchester on Sunday 4th June for anybody who is attending the One Love Manchester concert. 

Featuring artists such as Justin Bieber, Coldplay, Katie Perry and of course Ariana Grande, the concert is set to be an extraordinary yet emotional evening.

The bus is available to anybody attending the One Love Manchester concert and you must have a concert ticket in order to travel.

Jane Cole, Managing Director at Blackpool Transport said “We want to do our bit to help after such tragic events on 22nd May. Our hearts go out to all those who have been affected and if running a free bus to the concert on Sunday helps even just a little bit then it’ll be worthwhile. We’re also going to donate £5 to the Manchester Emergency Fund for every person who travels to and from the concert with us, so the more people who take up this offer the better”.

How do you secure your seat?

Just email us on [email protected]. Put ‘One Love’ in the subject box and let us know how many of you wish to travel. Only ticket holders for the concert will be allowed to ride on this trip and you will be asked to show this to the driver before boarding.

Places are limited to 70 people. We’ll confirm your place via return email but once the bus is full we’ll be unable to allow any further people to travel.

We need at least 20 people to secure their place in order for this trip to run, so get in touch now and let us do the driving.

Where do you catch the bus from?

The bus will leave from Blackpool Central Coach Station, opposite Coral Island at 16:00 sharp on Sunday 4th June. The bus will drop you off as near to the cricket ground as possible by around 17:30 depending on traffic.

The return journey will depart at 23:00 prompt from Waterside, adjacent to Wharfside Way which is a short walk north of Old Trafford Football Club and just a 0.9 mile walk from the cricket ground. Due to road closures we’ll be unable to pick you up any nearer to the concert. Below is where you’ll catch your return journey from and how to get there.
