Rideability - door to door community transport

To book call 01253 476668 9.00am until 5.00pm, Monday to Friday.

Blackpool Council’s Rideability service is supported by Disability Services Ltd.

It operates 6 days a week, Monday to Saturday providing transport to anyone who can’t use a conventional bus.

This may be because of a disability or health problem preventing you from getting to the nearest bus stop or because you are elderly or frail.

One of our wheelchair friendly buses will collect you from your door and take you to where you need to go, providing we have a bus travelling in the general direction.

You will be helped to the bus by your driver who will make sure you are safe and secure to travel.


Concessions apply. Price is dependent on the type of NoWcard held.

  • Disabled pass £1 per journey
  • Over 60s pass £2.30 per journey

To guarantee your space please book at least 2 days in advance by calling our booking line 01253 476668.
