7th Nov onwards
On Sunday 11 November the promenade will close as works on Talbot Road will extend towards the seafront. Talbot Road will remain closed between Talbot Square and Topping Street but the junction at Wilko will remain open with footpath works commencing around the roundabout (Wilko). This means some of our services will be changing where they stop in the town centre from the start of service on Sunday 11 November until further notice. Between 10:00 and 13:00 on Sunday 11 November there will be an additional diversion to northbound services 5, 6, 7, 11 and 17 due to us having no access to Church Street from the promenade. Please check before you travel.

Changes To Services 2C and 7
27th Jan onwards
On Sunday 27 January 2019 we are making some very slight changes to our services 2C & 7 to ease and improve your journeys. Service 2C In November, we changed the route of our service 2C meaning residents and patients of the Over Wyre Medical Centre had a direct bus route to the facility. The service will continue to travel along Pilling Lane and Grasmere Road to serve the Over Wyre Medical Centre but only between 06:50 until 17:20 Monday to Friday. At other times and Saturdays, the service will instead, continue down Lancaster Road on its way to the Ferry car park. This small change will ensure that there will continue to be a direct route to the Health Centre during its main opening hours whilst also taking into consideration feedback from residents in the area. To improve punctuality, some times have changed slightly to keep things running on time. This is mainly from Knott End to Blackpool, but please check your timetables from 27 January onwards. Service 7 We’re making a slight change to our service 7 route to make it easier to connect with our service 17 and continue your onward journeys to Lytham & Saltcotes. The service 7 will still begin and end at the Lord Derby pub bus stop (Square Stand 4) in St Annes but you will now be able to travel to the Marks and Spencers stop in St Annes Square this means you won’t need to walk to a different stop to catch your connecting bus. The service will then carry on along Clifton Drive before turning right onto Links Road and right onto South Promenade before turning right again and beginning its journey back to Blackpool from the Lord Derby bus stop as it is now. There will be no changes to the service 7 timetables.
