As taken from the Blackpool Transport website:

Devices used to support disability (i.e. Electric mobility scooters) are permitted to travel on our buses and trams.
Entirely at our own discretion, we agree to carry mobility scooters in our designated wheelchair spaces. We will only accept class 2 scooters that are no more than 600mm wide and 1000mm long with a turning radius not exceeding 1200mm. Where there is some doubt as to the compatibility of a mobility scooter, we will arrange to assess the Mobility Scooter and determine whether it complies. If it complies, we will provide a pass for the user to carry with them to avoid any dispute.
