Transport[edit]

The M6 motorway runs through the area, but until recently there was no junction nearby. Junction 31A has now been built, but there is no connection to or from the Lancaster direction.[2] Ribbleton railway station was near the Ribbleton ward boundary but the line has now closed. Bus services are provided by Preston Bus.
