Remembrance Sunday

2 months ago Wed 6th Nov 2019

Blackpool Transport are paying tribute to the nation’s fallen heroes this year by again, displaying large poppies on the front of its fleet of trams and buses.

The local transport operator has also added a commemorative poppy design to two of their environmentally friendly single decker buses, as a mark of respect for those who lost their lives for our freedom and in support of the Poppy Appeal.

As part of the commemorative events, Blackpool Transport will also offer free travel for all service personnel & veterans along with accompanying family members on Sunday 10th November (T&C’s below).

Jane Cole Managing Director at Blackpool Transport said “We hope that displaying large poppies on most of our vehicles will encourage passengers to support the appeal and will be seen by thousands across the Fylde Coast over the next couple of weeks.

We first wrapped buses in a poppy livery in 2014 and wanted reinvent that as a mark of respect for those who lost their lives, whilst importantly raising even more awareness. The Poppy appeal is a cause close to many hearts in Blackpool and we wanted to publicly show that everyone at Blackpool Transport is behind it.”

An annual Remembrance Day service will take place on Sunday 10 November from 10:30am at Blackpool's Cenotaph, North Pier.

T&C’s of offer:

Free travel will be granted to all service personnel with a valid ID such as a MOD 90, a veteran’s badge or similar on Sunday 10th November 2019 The offer extends to their spouses and children for up to 1 adult and 4 children or 2 adults and 3 children inclusive. Offer valid on any Blackpool Transport bus or tram.
