The 2RN at RSPB Arne

In a sign that summer is nearly with us, the RSPB Arne shuttle has returned. The 2RN bus service, which connects Wareham with the popular RSPB Nature Reserve at Arne, provides a convenient way for locals and tourists alike to visit the site. After a successful pilot, the shuttle is now in its third summer of operation.

The service will run from now through to the end of August on Wednesdays and Sundays, up to six times a day. A ticket is great value at £2 for an adult single, with concessionary bus passes accepted, children under 7 travelling free and under 19s travelling half price.  

“It’s becoming a sign that summer is nearly with us, like a swallow or a swift” said Tim Christian, General Manager at Dorset Community Transport. “We’re delighted that the 2RN has returned to RSPB Arne for the third summer running. We think it makes it easier for everyone to visit the site and have a great day out in this amazing corner of the Dorset country side. What’s more, travelling To Arne on the bus means you get a discount on your entry.”

The minibus service is delivered by Dorset Community Transport in a partnership with the RSPB, the Purbeck Community Rail Partnership and Wareham Town Council. Full details about the service, including timetables and ticket prices, can be found here.
