Coastliner Buses operates these School Services on behalf of Lancashire County Council and timetables, routes and fares are set by them. Our own range of day, weekly and monthly tickets are unfortunately not valid for travel on these services and neither are Blackpool Transport network tickets.
Fares on school services are determined by the length of the journey to/from the school and are set by Lancashire County Council. Currently student fares are £1.60 (£3.10 Return), £2.40 (£4.20 Return) and £2.90 (£5.30 Return). The correct cash fare is appreciated to assist the driver but all our buses are equipped for Contactless transactions too. All students with a pass for travelling on the school services we operate without charge need to show the pass to the driver on boarding the bus.
We are now pleased to offer weekly tickets on all our school routes. Weekly ticket prices are:
£15.50 - for journeys that would be priced at £1.60 (£3.10 Return)
£21.00 - for journeys that would be priced at £2.40 (£4.20 Return)
£26.50 - for journeys that would be priced at £2.90 (£5.30 Return)
Passes issued by Lancashire County Council will also be accepted for travel without charge and at all times on our services 21, 22, 24 & 26 to give added flexibility to students.
If you have any comments, complaints or lost property on any of the services we operate, please contact us in the first instance on 01253 761739 and we will do our best to assist you, or put you in touch with someone who can.
