Back to fun, back to shopping, back to work means #BACKTOBUS

1 week ago Mon 3rd May 2021

All our favourite shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants are opening back up, and we’re here to help you get back out there and enjoy them. 

We’ve run clean and safe buses right through the pandemic, and continue to do so now as we welcome you back on board. 

If you know where you want to go, plan your trip on our journey planner – otherwise take a look at some of our latest offers and tips below.

Whether you’re checking out the big brands in The Mall, or browsing quality shops on the high street and around the town centre – take the hassle out of your trip and let us do the driving.  Ride right into Blackburn bus station to be in the heart of town.

If you're after a change of scenery, look no further than Preston. Hotline goes directly from Blackburn to Preston so it's really easy to get to and has everything from high street brands at St Georges to Preston market with plenty of stalls, there's sure to be something there for everyone.

Our towns and cities are full of amazing places – get out and explore them.



We’ve made a few changes, to help people who aren’t riding the bus into work every day of the week – such as introducing new day and journey ticket bundles, meaning you can get total flexibility for around the price of a weekly ticket. Find out more and get yours here.

If you do ride the bus every day, taking out a monthly subscription for your bus ticket will be the best value for you. Or you may prefer to just buy a weekly ticket for now. Find yours here.

You can save even more if your employer is a member of our Commuter Club. If they’re not, ask whoever in your workplace looks after payroll to email us at [email protected] to get set up. Once your company is a member you can get 10% off 28 day mobile tickets.
