Dear Blackpool Transport Services Limited,

I would like to request a ZIP file containing the sound effects and updated announcements for the trams, including the stop request chime, platform announcement chime (that plays when the tram stops or passes a platform), and announcements for the doors/exit button

Yours faithfully,

Dear Mr Hulme,

Further to your recent FOI request, please find attached the current tram announcements for the Blackpool Tramway. I apologise for the delay in getting this material to you, we have been puzzling over the sound effects part of the equation.

I regret that we are unable to extract the sound effects data as this is copyright data with permission granted to us for its use from Prague. We therefore cannot pass this on to you.

The stop tone heard when a customer presses the stop button is part of the computer programme set up by the manufacturer and we are unable to access this. You could try contacting Bombardier.

I am sorry that we cannot provide everything you have asked for, but I hope the information provided is useful to you.

Yours faithfully,

Bryan Lindop on behalf of Blackpool Transport Services Ltd.
