LOCAL NEWS: New bus route between Bournemouth and Tower Park


Yellow Buses is encouraging passengers to take its new Saturday service between Bournemouth and Tower Park in Poole.

The number 19 will arrive at Tower Park every 90 minutes between 10am and 10pm, starting at Bournemouth railway station, through Lansdowne and the Square and then to Tower Park via Westbourne and Ringwood Road.

It allows more people to access Tower Park’s attractions which include Splashdown, Lemur Landings, Nando’s, Cineworld, Pizza Hut, Pizza Express and Buzz Bingo.

The new route is part of the company’s summer changes that were introduced on 7 April.

David Squire, managing director of Yellow Buses said: “We wanted to serve Tower Park on a Saturday as we have had requests from passengers.

“Because we want to link up public transport networks we are starting it at the railway station and returning there.

“The service allows students to access Tower park and it also links both Buzz Bingo venues in the conurbation.

“As well as the attractions such as Hollywood Bowl and the amusement arcade there are restaurants including Burger King, KFC, Day’s and TGI Fridays – as well as a huge Tesco.

“There are multiple stops on the service and we hope that ultimately it will lead to fewer cars on the road.

“It is part of a raft of changes we’ve introduced and all the details are on our website.”
