New 'bendy' trams, like two trams joined together, with several opening doors, like the London under ground trains. As with the buses in Blackpool you can use your free (silver top) bus pass on the trams. Getting on and off the new trams are fine...More

Trams are very plush and give a smooth ride, however they are too few and people have long waits, which in effect means a lot of pele on one tram. They are so packed you literally unable to move or even reach in to your...More

It avoids all the hassle of trying to use a car. It is cheap, frequent, comfortable and convenient. Why do anything else?

Got a 24 hour pass from the hotel to the tower. Had a good tour on the tram viewing the lights and did the full circle from end to end and put a late morning in. Plenty to see and tram staff pleasant.

No trip to Blackpool is complete without a ride on a tram, and we were not dissapointed. We purchased day rider type tickets, which were so cheap, we thought we were hearing things, and the staff aboard the trams are amazing. So helpful and friendly....More

No, not on the trams, only on the buses. Only locals (Blackpool, Wyre and Fylde) can use concessionary passes on trams. It's in the same way only locals with GMPT passes on the Mcr trams.

You can buy your ticket up to 12 months prior to using it. Make sure you do not activate the ticket until you are about to use it.
