Local bus services

We operate minibuses on a number of local bus routes. Please check the routes below and 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).


We currently operate the following local bus services:

  • 14 Birdsmoorgate and Thorncombe to Chard, via South Chard (see timetable here)*
  • 97 Fordingbridge to Ringwood, via Alderholt, Cranborne and Verwood (see new timetable as from 2 January 2018 here)
  • 88 Sturminster Marshall and Colehill to Wimborne (see timetable here)
  • 688 Thorncombe to Axminster, via Hawkchurch (see timetable here)*
* new fares came into effect from July 2018.

Please note that concessionary passes are accepted on these services (in accordance with the entitlement and extensions determined by the respective local authority). Click here for Dorset County Council’s Travel Dorset bus timetable page.

“In the present climate of cut-backs your service is truly appreciated especially by older folk like myself who no longer drive. It is hoped that this service may long continue.” Rosemary, Route 14
