Every Little Helps

Olympian 415 (A719YFS) leaves Staining for Tesco on the new free bus service on 7 October
Last month's changes to Line 15 saw the end of the link from Staining to Tesco - though in practise it had ceased in February due to the long term temporary arrangements arising from the redevelopment outside the Winter Gardens. The 15 terminated at Marton Mere where passengers could wait for the 4A shuttle to Tesco.

Last Wednesday (30 Sept) saw the start of service T1 - a Tesco free bus operated by Blackpool Transport from Poulton via Highcross Road, Normoss Road, Staining Road, Chain Lane, Mythop Road, Preston New Road to Tesco at Mereside. It operates on a trail basis until the end of December on Wednesdays and Fridays with two journeys each way departing from Poulton at 0930 and 1230 and from Tesco at 1100 and 1330. Journey time is 23 minutes each way.
