Summer 2019 Fare Structure

22 days ago Fri 29th Mar 2019

Yellow Buses fare zone map from 7th April 2019.

The Flex tickets will no longer exist as from the end of this week.  Any customers with Flex tickets valid for longer than the end of this week can exchange any remaining travel for network tickets in the Travel Shop.

The Flex offer will be removed from the online platform, the app platform, the travelshop and on bus shortly.

For customers travelling between Poole and Southbourne they can purchase the new Super Saver ticket.  This ticket is valid on bus and on app for use on routes 1, 1a and 1b only.  This ticket is not valid between Southbourne Crossroads and Somerford.

We are constantly looking to improve the Yellow Buses network and are excited to be expanding into new areas including Wimborne, Highcliffe and New Milton from 7th April 2019.​

​​​​​​To reflect the growing network, and to simplify our fares and tickets, the network will be sectioned into Zones A, AB & AC for day tickets.

  • Zone A:
    The network prior to 7th April (excluding the 737 route between Northbourne and Bournemouth Airport)
     
  • Zone AB:
    Zone A + the 737 to Bournemouth Airport + the 6 extension to Wimborne + Busters Beach Bus travelling from Boscombe Pier to Sandbanks
     
  • Zone ABC:
    Zone A + Zone B + the 1a extension to Highcliffe and New Milton

If travelling between zones on a route (eg. Bournemouth to Wimborne), you will need to purchase a joint zone ticket.
