Changes to stopping arrangements

Due to increased congestion in the area over the Air Festival weekend, there will be some changes to our stopping arrangements in Bournemouth town centre.

13, X1, X2, X3 and X6 services will terminate and start at Westover Road as per the current arrangements due to the emergency safety closure of Pier Approach.

m1, m2, N1, N2, 17, 32, Breezer 50 and Breezer 70 services will NOT serve Westover Road and will proceed directly to their stops in Bournemouth Square/Gervis Place. This will be after 2pm on Thursday and after 10am on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Services running through Westover Road before these times will operate as normal.

Diversions signs and route markers will be signposting alternative stopping arrangements so customers can find their stop.

We apologise for any inconvenience.
