Buses running on Christmas Day!

Normally on this day we report that no buses will be running on Christmas Day. But this blog has now expanded to cover Portsmouth, Bournemouth, Winchester and Salisbury as well as Southampton. Part of our region at least will be served by buses on Christmas Day.

More have run their M1 and M2 routes on 25th December in the past and are doing so again this year.

The usual routes are extended so that the M1 runs from Poole, via Bournemouth, to Castlepoint and on to the Royal Bournemouth Hospital. The M2 runs from Poole via Bournemouth to Southbourne and then on to Christchurch.

Here are the stops the M1 will serve on its extension between Castlepoint and the Hospital:

...and here are the stops the M2 will be using on its extension between Southbourne and Christchurch:

Period passes are valid as usual, but there will be special flat single and return fares of £4 adult single, £6 adult return, £3 child single and £5 child return.

No buses are running anywhere else in our region - not even in Southampton or Portsmouth.
