Before fbb moves on, there is one feature of Blackpool Transport that, to an outsider, is a bit of a mystery. Apart from its slight extension to the delights of the Affinity Shopping Outlet ...
Here, for example is the may of bus route 7 in the town centre.
2015 saw the arrival of 10 Mercedes Citaros, kick-starting the fleet regeneration plan. These were the first buses in Palladium branding and introduced revolutionary E-leather seating, free WIFI, and mobile charging ports. A year later the first batch of ADL Enviro 400 double-decker buses were introduced, with these following the same sleek Palladium branding and other additional benefits as their predecessors. Another year passed and in 2017 Blackpool Transport unveiled another 25 ADL Enviro 400 buses, these buses saw the introduction of social seating, with three clusters of tables grouped on the upper deck of the vehicle to allow a more sociable journey for groups. This was Blackpool Transport's biggest investment in over 50 years and in under 12 months, another 20 Enviro 400 buses were added to the fleet.
The buses were grand and exciting,
The Trams were super and swish
And the super bus timetable printed
Were t'best that any could wish.
