September bus time changes

Thursday, August 23 2018

From 16th September, there will be a few minor changes to our timetables. The m1 and m2 will be keeping to their summer timetables maintaining a more frequent service during those cold winter evenings. The 38 from Ferndown to Ringwood now features additional journeys, with the Purbeck Breezer 40 running an extra Sunday morning journey from October. The 20, X6 and X8 also have improved timetables to better assist with reliability and timekeeping, and Blandford shoppers will also benefit from a closer stop in the Blandford Lidl car park.

New timetable books are now available in our travel shop and the usual outlets. As this is a minor service change, please join us in our goal to save paper and only take a book if you really need one.

Please note: Stands M and N at Poole Bus Station will be swapping as of 16th September.
