Following recent government advice that it is advisable to wear a face covering whilst travelling on public transport Blackpool Transport which also runs a bus service through St Annes and Lytham has took up the initiative to have onboard face masks for sale on their vehicles.

The transport company posted on their social media platform today “You might notice some of our teams wearing masks or face coverings following the recent government guidance. Please do not be concerned or alarmed, this is just a measure that we are taking to keep both you and us, safe.”

The face masks are only £1, and Blackpool Transport are donating 50p of the £1 to the NHS!
