Round Up

Blackpool Transport has announced a route change to service 3 form 3rd January to allow larger buses to operate. The 3 will now run direct along Dickson Road from Gynn to the Town Centre rather than service Claremont and will use Sevenoaks Drive rather than The Spinney in Anchorsholme. It is understood the shorter Enviro 200s from the 3 will now move onto the 74/5 where the larger Enviros have been suffering accident damage on the tighter sections of these routes.

Enviro 459 has received an all-over advert for Heart FM, unusual treatment for the newest double decker. Transdev has returned 525, 531/3 but extended the loan of 526, 529 and 530 to Easter.

New Ticketer ticket machines are due to be rolled out in the new year. Buses have started to be fitted with 'tap on tap off' card readers with the main ticket machines to be rolled out on mass.
