Buster's Beach Bus advert for 2022

As of Saturday 9th April, we will be launching our summer open top service, Buster's Beach Bus. As a result, route 12 will be withdrawn and replaced by Buster's Beach Bus operating hourly every day between Alum Chine, Westbourne, West Cliff, Bournemouth Pier, East Cliff, Boscombe Pier, Hengistbury Head, Christchurch, Mudeford and Hoburne Holiday Park.

As a result of this change, new fares will be charged on Buster's Beach Bus. The zone A day ticket is not valid on this route. For travel on this route and the rest of the network, customers will now need to purchase the Buster's Beach Bus range of tickets or the zone AB day ticket - full fare information can be found here. Customers can still purchase single and return tickets on the route.

Weekly, monthly and other period tickets continue to be valid.

Please note, the Getting About ticket from BCP Council Getting is also not valid on Buster's Beach Bus.
