Catch22Bus is a locally owned and totally independent bus operator based in Blackpool.


From April 2016 we expanded our operations on the Fylde coast as a result of Stagecoach's departure. The services we operate are:


Service 21 operates during the summer months along the main Promenade linking hotels and sea front attractions between Cleveleys and St.Annes.

Service 22 has operated since September 2012 and links Blackpool Town Centre, Bispham, Cleveleys, Larkholme and Fleetwood.

Service 23 - links parts of Thornton with Cleveleys centre, an important link lost during the recent bus service cuts. This circular service starts & finishes at Cleveleys Bus Station serving Cleveleys Avenue, Central Avenue, Mayfield Avenue, Pheasants Wood Drive, Fleetwood Road and West Drive.

Service 24 links Cleveleys, Thornton & Poulton, replacing the eastern sections of former Stagecoach 84 and sections of routes previously supported by Lancashire County Council.


We have great value fares, friendly drivers and pride ourselves in operating a reliable bus service. Look out for our orange and turquoise Catch22 buses.
