About The Blackburn Bus Company
At The Blackburn Bus Company, we run local buses in and around Blackburn, Accrington and Darwen, as well as the fast and frequent Red Express to Manchester.
We're proud to have served the people of Blackburn since 1929, and our new name, The Blackburn Bus Company, reflects on our heritage and the pride we have in serving our town.
In 2016, we have already invested over £2 million in 18 amazing new buses for the 6&7, featuring audio-visual next stop information, smart new interiors, USB power points at every seat and superfast, free 4G WiFi.
Our buses are making use of the brand new Pennine Reach scheme, running fast down the bus lanes and into the bright and airy new bus stations at Accrington and Blackburn.
We also run the popular Red Express buses down the motorway and into Manchester, and Hotline which runs across the scenic Lancashire hills to Burnley and Preston.
