Travelling to Bournemouth Air Festival

2 weeks ago Wed 1st Sep 2021

Yellow Buses is working in partnership with BCP Council and South-Western Railway to provide frequent shuttle bus services from Bournemouth Rail Station to Bournemouth Pier and Town Centre for the Air Festival.

Yellow Buses already operate buses every 3-4 minutes from Bournemouth Rail Station into the Town Centre.  For the days of operation of the Air Festival, Yellow Buses will be operating additional buses on top of the existing service, and some of them will even be open top to make the experience of the Bournemouth Air Festival that much more memorable.

Customers can also obtain a cheap day ticket for travel on Yellow Buses through our app or by purchasing from our staff at the rail station.  The Zone A Group ticket for up to 5 people travelling together is discounted from £12 to £8 for the duration of the Air Festival.

Simon Newport, Commercial Director for Yellow Buses said, ’The Air Festival is a great event for Bournemouth and the surrounding area and we want people to travel to the event sustainably on public transport.  The rail/bus option makes travel really easy and cost-effective.’

He continued, ‘Customers can purchase our 5 person Group ticket for £8 from our YB Move App and use them on any service in zone A and on the shuttle service to the Pier from the Rail Station’.

Buses will return from the Pier and Town Centre to the Rail Station every few minutes during the day, with normal services operating at least every 10 minutes until midnight on all four days of the Air Festival.
