Buster's Beach Bus

Buster's Beach Bus will be running its usual service all weekend - running every 30 minutes from Boscombe Pier, Bournemouth Pier, Alum Chine and Sandbanks. Perfect for a weekend full of sand and sun! 

Our open-top service is a great way to cool off and enjoy the coastline before or after a day at the beach, view the timetable here.
