HOW WE ARE STAYING COVID-19 SECURE

Services by area


Local bus services

COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Considerations:

  • We kindly ask all passengers to wear a face covering at all times onboard (unless exempt), irrespective of whether the current guidance is mandatory or voluntary.
  • Please note, seating capacity may be reduced for us to comply with social distancing regulations.
  • As often as possible, we aim to achieve the 1-metre-plus guidance when this is not mandatory.

 

What is your local bus service?

We operate minibuses on a number of local bus routes. You catch the bus as you would a normal public bus service – there is no need to contact us to book (we are unable to accept bookings).


Where and when can I travel?

We currently operate the following local bus services:

  • 2RN Wareham Station and Purbeck Park (Norden Park-&-Ride) to RSPB Arne Nature Reserve (see timetable here).
