The Hamworthy Club (Magna Road)
Find our easy journey guide below for passengers that have an appointment for the new pop-up vaccination centre at The Hamworthy Club on Magna Road.
To make it easier for you to travel to and from your vaccination appointment, we have set up temporary bus stops outside the Hamworthy Club.
If you are coming from Poole, Creekmoor, Waterloo, Broadstone, Wimborne or Merley, you can take the bus. More bus service 4 connects to the our Route 6 in Wimborne Square, designed to get you safely and easily to and/or from your appointment.
You can use a Getting About ticket and your concessionary travel pass to get there using both services.
The times given are correct as of 12th January 2021 and we strongly advise that you check the times at your individual stop.

How we are keeping passengers safe
On top of our existing rigorous cleaning processes, we have introduced an intensified cleaning regime across our fleet and premises with all poles, handrails, seats and other key areas of our vehicles disinfected regularly. This includes buses being 'fogged' to help disinfect the entire bus. You can find more detailed information on our dedicated page here.
When boarding our buses, you will see there is hand sanitiser by the doors, seats by the drivers have been cordoned off, and there are posters on every bus with travel guidance information. More information on social distancing can be found on our dedicated page here.
All of our drivers are protected behind screens and have been issued with hand sanitisers. All drivers have access to face coverings and gloves if they wish to use them.
