Blackpool Buses

As my daughter had sent me some photos of buses operating in Blackpool,I thought I would do a quick post on what she saw

Understandably photos of Blackpool Transport dominate and the first above shows new arrival Mercedes Benz O.295 Citaro 550 BJ15BEY. Delivered to the resort's undertaking on 10th April 2015, number 550 is seen above heading for Victoria Hospital

Another interesting vehicle in the Blackpool fleet was 350 E17BTS, an East Lancs Lolyne bodied Dennis Trident. It was originally with Bus Vannin (Isle of Man Transport) as GMN324F and joined the Blackpool fleet in April 2012

Volvo Olympians still operate in service in Blackpool and here is Alexander RL bodied R260NBV - numbered 16660 in the Stagecoach Cumbria & North Lancashire fleet. It was new to Ribble in November 1997

Finally a picture of one of the independent operator's vehicles and this is Catch22Bus Dennis Dart SLF V658HEC. The saloon was new to Blackburn Transport in January 2000 and pictured on its way to the Town Centre. Catch22Bus is the new name for the previous Oakwood Travel and Classic Bus operations
