Summer bus times and route changes

Thursday, April 27 2017

From 28 May, we launch our summer service change to accommodate for the busy and sunny season up ahead! There's lots to see and do in Bournemouth and Poole and we're here to get you there and home again.

As part of our changes, we will be extending the m2 to Southbourne Crossroads. This will mean the m2 will serve more of Southbourne and provide easy access to the award winning Southbourne beach and overcliff.

Due to a cut in council funding, we shall also be withdrawing the 128The 10 will be revised to accommodate part of the missing route in Sterte, Stanley Green and will also newly serve Wessex Gate Retail Park giving you access to more shops, fast food outlets and places to visit.
