Blackpool Transport update

Minor timetable changes took place to the 1 and 20 with the 1 revised to focus on its busy time. From Fleetwood it runs 0800 then 0845 and every 30 mins to 1815. From Starr Gate there are trips at 700 and 730 but then a gap until 0900 then every 30 mins to 1700 then 1745 and 1815. The 20 is reduced to every 90 minutes.

Over the main half term week commencing 26th October, a Saturday service was run on the 2, 2C, 3, 4, 5, 9, 14 and 17. From 1st November most returned to the normal weekday service, except 5, 7 and 9 which will retain their Saturday timetables. This may well change with the introduction of stay at home rules from Thursday.

To update the Trident disposals, 314/5 remained unaccounted for (both still SORN) and Archway have kept 319 after accident repairs and repainted it red. Older disposals, see 349-352 having moved on from Reading Buses to Go Southern Coachlines who have sold 349 and 351 to Vale Travel of Aylesbury while 352 is being kept for operation, and 350 for spares.
