September Service Changes

10 months ago Wed 25th Aug 2021

There will be a number of changes to the network from Sunday 5th September to coincide with schools returning, the universities and a predicted increase in passenger numbers. Unfortunately, this coincides with the Air Festival and where we would normally ensure that our roadside publicity is in place for the start of the new timetable, there may be some delays as we will aim to keep the old timetables up as long as possible.

What is changing?

  • Route 1 will continue to terminate at Tuckton every 20 minutes Monday to Saturday, with buses also running through to Christchurch every 20 minutes.
  • Route 3 early morning and late evening journeys remain unchanged but the daytime frequency will now be every 20 minutes.
  • New Route 3x – to improve access to the Hospital and Castlepoint this new route 3x will operate from Bournemouth Square, Bournemouth Rail Station and direct to the Hospital and Castlepoint every 30 minutes Monday to Friday, and every 60 minutes Saturday and Sundays.
  • Route 4a timetable is reduced to match demand, and will now only operate between Bournemouth Triangle and Kinson Monday to Friday.
  • Route 5/5a will now operate every 7/8 minutes Monday to Friday, and every 15 minutes on each leg and every 10 minutes on Saturdays. Sundays and evenings continue to be interworked with route 3 to provide a bus every 10 minutes.
  • Route 6 timetable is modified to operate every 15 minutes Monday to Friday daytime between Bournemouth and Wallisdown, Saturday and Sunday timetables remain unchanged. The loop around Canford Bottom is withdrawn, but the 6h will replace these journeys along Leigh Road.

The timetables for all other routes remain unchanged except for the school services.
