The government recently announced that those who cannot work from home should return to work. As a result, we expect to see an increase in people wanting to use the bus, and to maintain social distancing, we are pleased to be increasing our timetables for you.

We encourage you to follow the official guidelines when making a journey, including wearing a face covering, travelling during off-peak hours, only paying by contactless or mobile app, and making sure you adhere to social distancing on-board where possible.

In order to maintain social distancing at Poole Bus Station, there have been some stand changes, so you may need to catch your bus in a different place. Some stands have been moved to Kingland Road and Seldown Coach Park. See each route listed below to find out where your bus goes from and the map which shows the new stops. Here is a handy PDF guide of where each bus will go from.
