LOCAL NEWS: Travel on any bus in BCP with new weekly ‘Smartcard’


A new weekly ‘Getting About Smartcard’ has arrived in Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole that allows for unlimited travel on most buses.

The new weekly card means that you can now travel across BCP for £22 (adults) and £18 (children) for seven consecutive days. 

In addition to the weekly ticket, there is also a one-day ticket available costing £5 for adults and £3 for children.

Cards can be purchased from Yellow Bus Enquiry Office on Avenue Road in central Bournemouth, morebus enquiry office at Poole Bus Station, the Information Office at Bournemouth Rail and Coach Station (underneath Asda). 

Once you have purchased one, you can top it up whenever you want, but unused funds will not be refunded. 

The card can be used:

  • On Damory, First buses, morebus, Route One and Yellow Buses within Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole. 

However, its important to note that the card can’t be used: 

  • On Yellow Buses 737 service between Northbourne and Bournemouth International Airport, so the card is not valid for travel to or from the Airport or the Aviation Business Park.
  • for travel to surrounding areas outside of the scheme area (for example, Ferndown, Ringwood, Salisbury, Swanage and Wimborne).
  • on night buses, dedicated school buses, or on special on-off services (for example, park and ride for special events).
