As many schools now begin to break up for the long-awaited summer holidays, some of our bus services will be operating their school holiday timetables whilst others will see an increase in frequency. See below for a summary of what's changing:
All morebus timetables, excluding the Purbeck Breezer 50 and 60, that have a different timetable for school term times and school holidays will operate the school holiday timetables from Sunday 22nd July despite some schools remaining open until Wednesday 25th July. Please make sure you check the timetable to ensure you catch the correct bus.
As of Saturday 28th July, the Purbeck Breezer 50's frequency will increase to every 30 minutes daily giving you a fun, fast and frequent way of getting to the beach! This will last until Saturday 15th September.
The Purbeck Breezer 60 will also change on Saturday 28th July with all services between 0900 and 1800 running direct through Whitecliff and Lilliput through to Sandbanks. The Purbeck Breezer 70 will start its seasonal service again between Poole and Bournemouth via Alum Chine. This route will serve the indirect sections of the 60 route including Canford Cliffs and Compton Acres during these times. The 60 will continue to run via the indirect route during the early morning and late evenings.
New for this year, the 152 will operate a summer Sunday/Public Holiday service between Sunday 22nd July and Monday 27th August inclusive. The 152 will run half-hourly from Poole to Rockley Park via the Lighthouse, Poole Park, Poole Hospital, Poole Railway Station, the Quay and Lower Hamworthy. The return service from Rockley Park to Poole will run via Lower Hamworthy, Poole Quay and Furnell Road.
Allenbourn School students catching the 07:30 route 4 from Poole Bus Station should continue to wait at the bus stop at the usual time. The subsequent route 3 towards Poole will depart Wimborne at the school holiday time of 08:25 but will divert via Allenbourn on Monday and Tuesday, arriving in Poole a few minutes later. Students catching the 15:15 route 4 should continue to wait at the school as the school holiday timetabled journey will divert via Allenbourn on Monday but may be a few minutes later than normal.
