Fast and frequent - there's lots of ways to travel between Blackburn and Accrington!


Did you know that there are lots of ways to travel quickly between Blackburn and Accrington?

With our popular red express, there's a really quick bus between Blackburn and Accrington every 30 minutes during the daytime.

If you haven't tried out our amazing buses on red express yet – you're really missing out! Spacious, comfy leather seats, superfast free 4G WiFi and USB power at every seat means there's really no comfier way into town. Don't forget – you can stay on red express and travel all the way over yonder to Manchester, with buses coming back late into the evening.

If you live in Rishton, Great Harwood, Clayton-le-Moors or Oswaldtwistle, don't forget there's also the really frequent 6&7, where you'll find a bus to Blackburn or Accrington every 7 minutes. We recently introduced amazing new buses on the 6&7. Costing over £2million, each of the 18 brand new buses features a beautifully crafted designer interior, free WiFi, USB power, audio-visual next stop announcements, and our innovative 'countdown' destination displays to let you know exactly when the bus is ready to leave.

Don't forget, all of our buses are now whizzing down the new bus lanes around town! They're also taking advantage of the shiny new bus stations at Accrington and Blackburn.

You can ride around town from as little as £10.70 a week - just ask your driver for a weekly ticket, or download our Lancashire Bus app. 

With so many amazing options available to travel between Blackburn and Accrington, we will stop running the 46 after Friday 23 December 2017.
