Bus Information


NEWS: East Dorset District Council, when in existence (ceased to be at the end of March 2019) funded the concessionary travel 'addition' which allows users of the National Bus Pass to travel before 9.30 am (Monday - Friday) without charge within the 'East Dorset' area. From April 2019, East Dorset as an authority ceased to exist. However, the concession will continue until reviewed by the new Dorset Council. Any news on this will be posted here. 

West Moors is served by Morebus (formerly known as Wilts & Dorset), part of the GoAhead Group of companies (which includes the Damory operation). There is also a once-a-week services provided on behalf of Sainsbury's, Ferndown (Damory SA1). There are simplified "departure only" sheets showing times of departures from Station Road & Pinehurst Road (below); also, a new feature, a summary-listing of departure times from six points along the route of the X6: see below. If there are any mistakes, they are my own! Please refer to bus stop displays (when updated), on-bus timetable notices or the official web sites of each operator in any doubt.

X6_PinehurstRd  Remember to allow at least 5 minutes before any published time for the vehicle to arrive and appreciate we live in one of the busier areas of southern England as regards traffic flow; the longer routes can experience significant delays due simply to the volume of road users - an accident can throw bus operations into complete chaos!
There are several ways to find current timetables for buses via the internet: two are listed here: some even allow you to trace what's happened to your bus!

* Traveline .... HERE, and use the "Plan your journey" tab for either 'Live Times' or 'Timetables'.

* Bus Times .... HERE, covers the entire country and can even tell you how late a bus is running!
