  • Dorset County Council - looking at innovative ways of meeting the challenging demands of transporting visitors along the Jurassic Coast, one of the UK’s most iconic stretches of coastline. The Jurassic Coast is England’s only natural World Heritage Site and the bus is the ideal way to go and explore its many treasures.

We operate a special range of summer services to meet the needs of holidaymakers visiting the beautiful south Dorset and Devon areas. These include open top buses running between Weymouth and Portland Bill offering stunning views across Chesil Beach. We also offer regular Weymouth services to and from popular holiday parks at Littlesea and Waterside.
