Correct. If you buy from a pay point shop, or their offices £3.50. It is £4.00 if bought on bus/tram. It is valid on all Blackpool Transport Buses and the new trams.

Dont say it that too loudly or they'll be putting up their prices!

But yes, a 1 day adult pass is £3.50 when purchased from a paypoint outlet or one of Blackpool transports travel centre. £4.50 If you buy from the driver. Paypoint outlets tend to be small shops, newsagents etc but you can find details of the nearest one to you on the website.

Passes are only valid on the regular trams (the new ones) - they have rebranded the old ones as 'heritage' and charge about £10.00 for those

How much is it for a child day ticket? My Dad and daughter are going to Blackpool for a few days and he has hes pensioners pass which I believe is okay to use on normal trams (not heritage) and only after 9.30, the same as buses at home.

Thanks

Jo

Near Savoy?. You want the Spar shop on Dickson Road. Just before the Savoy is a roundabout with grass in the middle. Dickson road is off this roundabout between Gynn pub and Papparazzi (the yellow building). Spar is on the left side as you walk up.
