September bus times and route changes

Thursday, August 17 2017

From 17 September, we introduce our new Winter Timetable Book taking us through to next spring! The book will contain some amended routes and timetables which are summarised below. As the nights draw colder, we're here to take you to all the fun and festive things to see and do this season as well as making sure you get back home again.

Amongst amending some timetables to improve reliability, we have also reversed the 10's route around Lytchett Matravers due to overwhelming customer feedback. Buses will now enter the village via Wareham Road and leave via Wimborne Road meaning customers can take advantage of better waiting facilities. The X6 will benefit from a more reliable timetable after listening to customer and driver comments. In addition to this, our UNIBUS partnership with Bournemouth University and Arts University Bournemouth will also see a new route U5 taking students and staff from Talbot Campus to the new Home Park accommodation in Lansdowne.

New timetable booklets are now available from Poole Bus Station.
