route 13 - more buses and a new route in Wimborne

1 month ago Tue 9th Jan 2024

Good news!

We have been working closely with our partners at BCP council and by using  HM Government BSIP (Bus Service Improvement Grant funding), we are making some frequency improvements to our route 13 from Bournemouth via Ferndown to Wimborne.  From Sunday 18th February buses will now be every 20 minutes plus there is a route number amendment as we will have a 13 and 13a. So whether you are looking for a bit of history, culture and fine dining in Wimborne, or just want to chill out at the beach, or enjoy family fun in Bournemouth, route 13/13a is ideal for you.

Wimborne has several new housing developments added to the town in the last couple of years, therefore we will have a new route for the 13 in Wimborne.  Towards Wimborne, there will be 2 buses per hour that will turn left from Canford Bottom into Hayes Lane and then right into Leigh Road which is very convenient for those in the residential area of Quarter Jack Park.

The original route that serves Colehill will be renumbered 13a and there will be 1 bus per hour.

For customers in Ferndown there is no need to worry about the route numbers as both the 13 and 13a come through Ferndown along the same route.

Timetables leaflets will be available in our travel shop in Poole bus station from early February.

We will have the same super comfy double-deckers with tables and high-back seating for you to enjoy. You can either relax or work along the way.

We look forward to welcoming new customers on board and by choosing the bus, we thank you for helping to reduce congestion and improve air quality in our area.  1 double-decker bus can take 75 cars off the road.

All of our buses accept contactless, paperless ticketing just tap on at the driver's ticket machine and tap off at the special reader by the exit door as you leave.  All single bus fares are currently just £2 until at least 30th June 2024, so there has never been a better time to convert to bus.

We recommend you download our app so you can track your bus in live times or buy different ticket options such as period passes or multi-day bundles.
