Customers who are travelling to/from Bournemouth should change to the X3 at Ringwood or the 13 at Ferndown


Due to the temporary closure of the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu, buses are unable to serve this stop, and therefore will run directly to Beaulieu Garage instead. Buses towards Lymington are retimed to leave the village at 0928, 1054, 1309 & 1502 as a result.


Please note that any routes not listed will still be running to their current timetables. All other timetable information can be found on the Timetables & Maps page.

As always, please remember to adhere to government advice when travelling. Don’t forget your face covering which is compulsory, unless you are exempt on medical grounds by law. To keep our drivers safe, please consider paying by contactless and our clickit2ride mobile app where you can instead of cash. Please remember to practice social distancing at all times. We also encourage customers to use our on board hand sanitisers, and to sit in the window seat when travelling. 

We would like to thank all our customers for their patience during this time and commend our front-line colleagues who are all doing a fantastic job in difficult circumstances.
