Northern teams-up with Blackpool Transport to offer rail passengers ‘through tickets’ onto seaside resort’s bus and tram network
People heading to Blackpool on trains operated by Northern will now be able to buy one ‘through ticket’ that will also cover their bus and tram journeys in the town.
Working in partnership with Blackpool Transport – the seaside resort’s bus and tram operator – Northern’s customers will be able to travel onwards from Blackpool North or Blackpool South to destinations including Fleetwood, Bispham and Thornton Cleveleys.
Chris Jackson, regional director for Northern, said: “This partnership is a great example of Northern finding ways to make our customer’s journeys easier.
“We’re proud to be working with Blackpool Transport to help connect thousands of our customers with their work, leisure and education destinations.”
