Recreating the transport of yesteryear...

Step Up!

Saturday 31 December is the last day that non-low floor double deck buses can be used on stage carriage services. To mark the occasion, the LTT in association with Catch22Bus will be operating Blackpool PD3s 516/529, London Routemaster RM1583 and Ribble VRT 1997 in passenger service on the 21 route between St.Annes and Cleveleys throughout the day.

We have got a few surprises up our sleeve too, so we hope you will join us for this farewell event.

The Lancastrian Transport Trust (LTT) is the guardian of a unique collection of buses spanning over 80 years of public transport history.

Our origins are rooted in the Lancastrian Transport Group, established back in 1983. The expanding collection was converted into a Trust in 1996 and then in 2000 the LTT became a Registered Charity.


Our objectives are to preserve a representative collection of vehicles to portray the development of public transport on the Fylde coast and showcase these in a visitor attraction.


As well as preservation we attend local events where we operate shuttle services. We also attend charity and community activities. Click here for more details.
