Coronavirus: information for customers

13th Mar onwards

Most of our routes are running on a reduced frequency so that we can continue to run a reliable service for key workers only. Please check before you travel.

Further Updates to our Bus Services

29th Mar onwards

Due to the ongoing situation, we have needed to further reduced 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

Further Service 14 Diversions - Norcross Roundabout

26th Mar onwards

  • Affected routes:
  • 14

Due to the work on Norcross Roundabout there is a change to how our service 14 will be diverting from the start of service on Thursday 26 March.
During this work, the 14 will be diverting from the Castle Gardens and travelling through Poulton, then via Amounderness Way and Victoria Road East returning to its normal route at Four Lane Ends.
This means the service will not be able to use any of the stops on Fleetwood Road South between the Castle Gardens and Norcross Roundabout or stops at Beechwood Drive, Neville Drive and the southbound Four Lane Ends stop (There is a temporary stop located on Victoria Road for the service 14 heading towards Blackpool Town Centre).
There will be a free shuttle service running every 15 minutes between Beechwood Drive and Four Lane Ends (via Fleetwood Rd South and Hawthorne Rd) to connect you to service 14 and additionally between the Castle Gardens Via Arundel Drive which you can catch from a temporary stop near Carleton Green Primary School. These free shuttle services will connect you with the service 14 for your onward journey.
For any further information or help with planning your journey, please feel free to get in contact with our team via social media, [email protected] or on 01253 473001 between 11 am and 3 pm.

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.

Services 3, 4 and 6 Diversion - Topping Street

2nd Jan onwards

Due to roadworks, our services 3, 4 and 6 will be diverting in the town centre from Thursday 12 December until further notice.

This means the services will not be stopping on Topping Street and will instead use Cookson Street and Talbot Road before continuing their normal routes. You will be able to catch your services at a temporary stop on Cookson Street, or from Talbot Road opposite Wilko (service 6) or on Dickson Road (services 3 & 4).

This diversion affects services 3 & 4 to Cleveleys only and southbound service 6.
