Blackpool Town Centre to Mereside Tesco via South Shore

Service 18 and 19 Diversion - Queen Street

10th Feb onwards

Due to United Utilities work, our services 18 and 19 need to divert in the town centre and will not be able to stop on Queen Street until further notice. Where to catch your bus: Both services will use their normal routes into Blackpool but will then divert and stop at the bus stop on Clifton Street where they begin and end. You can catch the services to Mereside (18) and Staining (19) from stops on Clifton Street or at Wilko’s on Talbot Road.

Further Updates to our Bus Services

29th Mar onwards

Due to the ongoing situation, we have needed to further reduce the frequency on our bus routes from Sunday 05 April. Our tram services continue to be suspended until further notice. Our service 1 is still running along the promenade and other bus services can be used as an alternative to the tramway. The last thing that we want to do is inconvenience those whose need to travel is essential and we will continue to work hard so that we can ensure that vital frontline workers can still use public transport. Please continue to avoid travelling unless it is absolutely essential that you do so and follow government guidance at all times. You can check full updated timetables for all services on the Routes and Maps page of our website and full summary information at https://www.blackpooltransport.com/further-reductions-bus-services

Our buses should leave main stops no later than 5 minutes past the scheduled time, and no earlier than 1 minute before. Drivers use main stops to keep running on time, but stops in between these are only estimates and drivers are not asked to wait at these stops. We do our best to run our buses ​on​ time, but please allow plenty of time to catch the bus and any connections as not everything is within our control.
