More or less, if you don't mind a short walk. The tram will go to Starr Gate and it's a short walk over the hill to the airport. Probably about 10 minutes and the fare is only about £2.

Why do you pay a £2 fare to walk to the airport ??

The trams go close - however the 7 and 11 buses go right to the Airport.

I don't pay a £2 fare to walk to the airport! If I wanted a taxi I would certainly get one.

Of course you could always use your bus pass.

It is a stone's throw however from the tram and 10 minutes' walk is nothing to most people who enjoy a walk!

misslyons .

Sorry if I misunderstood your original post.

I really will have to read more carefully, Didn`t see any mention of taxis .

As you say it`s only a short and enjoyable walk --- wouldn`t bother with my bus pass !!

I posted here: tripadvisor.co.uk/…42839671 about my trip to Blackpool last Saturday.

I posted it on that thread as it was mainly about checking out real ale pubs.

However, I experienced severe delays and disruption on the Metro going from Blackpool to Fleetwood, and back to Blackpool, and wanted to know if this was a common occurance.

Certainly, the locals who appeared to use this service every day were grumbling.

There is supposed to be a tram every 10 mins Monday to Saturday going from Starr Gate to Fleetwood Ferry, but this was far from the truth on Saturday 13th July.

Can any local advise if delays and cancellations are a regular occurence on the Metro?

I'm just bumping this up after all the earlier spam on the Blackpool forum.

So, can anyone answer my question?
