PlusBus Shuttle: Alderholt - Fordingbridge every Wednesday 

This new service for PlusBus members connects Alderholt and Fordingbridge every Wednesday, running along a fixed route on a timetable – and there’s no need to book a seat, just turn up and go. 

The service starts at the “Charing Cross” (Co-op) bus stop on Ringwood Road in Alderholt, before travelling onto Earlswood Drive, Birchwood Drive and Hillbury Rd, picking up from any safe location. The last pick-up before moving onto Fordingbridge is the “Windsor Way” bus stop on Hillbury Road. In Fordingbridge, the service drops off at the bus stops in Salisbury Street – or at the surgery by request.    

On it’s way back from Fordingbridge, the service travels direct to Alderholt and can pick-up or drop-off passengers anywhere along Station Road. Passengers travelling to Earlswood Drive, Birchwood Drive and Hillbury Rd can simply stay on the bus as it makes it’s way round the village back towards Fordingbridge.  

To use the service, passengers will need to be members of our PlusBus scheme. For those new to PlusBus, it’s easy to join and more details can be found here.  A single fare costs £2 for an adult, £1 for a child between 7 and 18yrs and is free for children under 7. National bus passes are also accepted.
