Mereside to Grange Park via Blackpool Town Centre & Layton
Services 6, 9 and 14 Diversion - Corporation Street Transport Hub Works

15th Jul onwards

As part of the Making Blackpool Better plans, there are works due to be carried out on Corporation Street meaning a change to where some of your services will be stopping. These works form Phase 2 of the update to the town centre 'Transport Hub' and will provide more space for buses to stop and wait in the town centre, in turn making it even easier for you to connect with other services and continue your journey. During the upgrade, the three services currently stopping on Corporation Street (6, 9 and 14) will have a change to where they are stopping. Services 9 and 14 can be caught from Central Library/Queen Street during the upgrade works. Service 6 can be caught from the bus stop on Corporation Street outside the Town Hall/Police Counter during the works.
