Blackpool Trams

Blackpool Transport is the proud operator of Blackpool’s £100 million tramway. The four year project, which concluded in April 2012, saw the replacement of 11 miles of track, creation of a new depot and introduction of a fleet of 16 state-of-the-art trams.

It has never been easier to travel across Blackpool and the Fylde coast, with faster journey times, easy access and integrated Blackpool1 tickets that give you unlimited use of the trams and Blackpool Transport bus network.(excluding Heritage Trams).

Our frequent and reliable tram service provides an energy efficient mode of transport connecting residents and visitors to all major leisure, retail and businesses along the 11 mile stretch of coastline between Starr Gate and Fleetwood.

The trams have level boarding and step-free interiors and designated disabled/pushchair areas making them accessible to all. Our frequent and reliable service connects passengers to all major leisure, retail and businesses along the 11 mile stretch of coastline.

We are delighted to announce the exciting and long anticipated Heritage Tram Tours operating dates for the 2015 season!

The core tour service will operate between North Pier and Pleasure Beach from 1000hrs to 1700hrs up to every twenty minutes and use ‘open boat’ cars in fine weather or enclosed heritage trams at other times. Enhanced services will operate at bank holidays and other special events including runs further afield on the tramway to include Little Bispham and Fleetwood.
