Blackpool News Blackpool Transport to add more bus journeys from Sunday 14th June 4 June 2020 by Visit Blackpool Blackpool Transport, the local operator of buses and trams in Blackpool is adding more buses and more journeys to timetables from Sunday 14th June. It is in response to an increase in customer numbers as lockdown restrictions have eased and means there will be more buses available ahead of retail outlets opening on the 15th June. Blackpool Transport have been operating a reduced timetable for key workers since 5th April but will now increase the frequency on most routes so that customers can continue to travel safely, following social distancing guidelines. Jane Cole, Managing Director at Blackpool Transport said “We have been running approximately half of the amount of journeys we would normally operate since 5th April which has meant that customers could make essential journeys as safely as possible. As we slowly see an increase in customer numbers, we will continue to increase the number of journeys so that returning customers can travel us safely, which is our top priority.” Customer numbers on Blackpool buses are down by around 80% compared to the same period last year and the latest increase in bus services means there will be plenty of space for customers to spread out and travel safely. The local operator has committed to gradually increase services in line with customer demand moving forward.
