The amazing new buses are equipped with all the latest technology and creature comforts, including superfast free WIFI, USB power sockets at every seat, next-stop announcements and stylish designer interiors. What's more, they feature pioneering 'countdown' destination displays, to let you know exactly when the bus will depart!

The buses also introduce our new name – The Blackburn Bus Company – reflecting our proud heritage of serving Lancashire since 1929.

It's not just the buses that are changing. We're now zipping fast through the rush hour traffic using dedicated lanes for our buses, which have opened as part of the £40 million Pennine Reach rapid transit scheme. The bright and airy new bus stations in Accrington and Blackburn town centres are also open, so you can jump off the bus and head straight into the shops, or await your ride home in comfort and style.
