On Monday 10 December from 09:30 works will begin in Bispham Village between Red Bank Road and All Hallows Road. During these times we will be diverting our services 3, 9 and 12 and will not be able to serve any of the stops in Bispham Village.

Where to catch your bus -

Services 9 and 12 – Will use its normal route to the Moor Park Health Centre before turning onto Bristol Avenue and then onto Ashfield Road, returning to its normal route from the Crofton Avenue bus stops on Ashfield Road. Temporary bus stops on Ashfield Road will be used and this diversion will run in both directions.

Service 3 – Will use its normal route to the Bispham Hotel, turn right onto Red Bank Road, right from the roundabout to Bispham Road (stopping at the Bispham Library stop), left onto Bristol Avenue and left onto Ashfield Road re-joining its normal route. This diversion will also run in both directions.

During the diversions for these services there will be temporary stops placed on Ashfield Road where you will be able to catch both services.

Changes to Where to Catch Your Bus in the Town Centre

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.

These disruptions could affect future journeys

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.
