Blackpool's Trams Just The Ticket!

Monday, 13th June 2016

Blackpool’s trams have once again been recognised in the annual Trip Advisor Awards. It’s the second year in a row that the company has secured the top award.

Both the resort’s Heritage and new Light Rail Transit Trams have been awarded a Certificate of Excellence for superior Service.  It is based on consistently positive reviews from customers who’ve travelled by tram along the Fylde Coast.

Blackpool’s Heritage trams are now into their second year of providing tours up and down the Promenade for holidaymakers who love taking a step back in time to ride on the famous old double deckers. 

Blackpool Transport’s Head of Heritage Bryan Lindop said: 

“I am absolutely thrilled by this latest good news from Trip Advisor and so proud of every member of the Heritage team for the brilliant contribution they have made again this year to enhance Blackpool’s Tramway experience. To achieve this accolade two years running is incredible, but proves beyond a doubt that hard work, commitment and dedication do pay off. The Blackpool tramway is the only place in the British Isles where we can showcase our long and remarkable history, whilst simultaneously providing a modern, friendly and efficient light rail system. Combining both experiences on one tramway quite simply gives us a great product and it’s so lovely for this to be recognised by our customers.” 

The news comes in the same week as industry figures show a massive increase in the number of passengers being carried on Blackpool’s trams. 

4.9 million passenger journeys were taken in 2015, an increase of 20 per cent on the previous year. 

Blackpool’s new Flexity tram service is now in its fourth year and continues to provide a vital commuter link for local customers along the Fylde Coast.

The award also comes a few months after the National Passenger Focus Survey showed passenger satisfaction on Blackpool’s trams is running at 96%. 

Managing Director of Blackpool Transport, Jane Cole said: 

“This is an amazing achievement. I am so proud of the team here at Blackpool Transport who have put in so much effort over the past 12 months to ensure our customers have a fantastic experience!”
