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.
31st Aug onwards
On Fridays, Saturdays and every night during the October half-term (20 October – 2 November) our services 5, 6 and 7 will be running a split service to help keep you running on time during Blackpool's busiest time of year. Services 11 and 17 will also have a small change which will see them stop on New Bonny Street rather than Market Street. To keep everything running as smoothly as possible we've also introduced some changes to our timetables as well during this period to help buses run on time. Most routes will have extra time in the timetables so they have more time during their route to beat the congestion in the town and get you where you want to be. Service 3, 4, 9 & 11 have a slightly reduced frequency on Saturday's so they have the time they need to run on time as much as possible. Service 1 will be finishing service a little earlier due to the traffic levels along the promenade. The split services (service 5, 6 & 7 only) will begin at 6pm until the end of service every Friday & Saturday between 31 August and 19 October. They will then begin at 5pm daily from 20 October to 2 November. A free shuttle bus to help you travel across the town centre will run regularly. Just ask your driver where to catch the shuttle bus from. Service 5 to Victoria Hospital, Service 6 to Grange Park & Service 7 to Cleveleys will all terminate on the New Bonny Street near Coral Island. You’ll need to change buses and catch the bus from the town centre stops for your onward journey. Service 5 to Halfway House and Service 6 to Mereside will terminate at temporary stops in St John's Square, and Service 7 to Lytham will terminate opposite Wilko on Talbot Road. To continue your journey, you’ll need to change buses and catch the bus from New Bonny Street, opposite Coral Island. You’ll still be able to buy single fares for your entire journey so you won’t have to pay any extra. Services 3 & 4 will be diverting between Friday 20 October and Saturday 2 November in the Bispham area. This is due to anticipated traffic congestion with the beginning of the school half-term holidays. Check the service updates page for specific information on the 3 & 4 diversion.
