COVID-19 VISITENGLAND WE’RE GOOD TO GO ACCREDITED BUSINESS
We've received the ‘We’re Good to Go’ industry standard and consumer mark - which recognises our efforts to implement cleaning and social distancing measures for colleagues and customers during the coronavirus crisis. The standard is issued by Visit Britain to confirm businesses are ready to encourage visitors.
As many of you will already know, we have been transporting key workers since March and, now that lockdown is easing, our team is looking forward to seeing many more passengers from across the region and from further afield, as tourists start to visit and stay in our region again. We are excited to be welcoming lots more people on-board.
We have stringent cleaning regimes in place - including extra focus on touch points, which are regularly treated with anti-viral wipes. Our bus seating has been arranged to allow our customers to practice social distancing, and we have undertaken risk assessments in all our work places and at Poole Bus Station.
Further measures we have taken include social distancing signposts and markings, hand washing facilities, access to hand sanitiser, and protective screens for our drivers. You could definitely say ‘we’re good to go’ - so we are delighted to have been recognised by this industry standard.
The county is beginning to emerge from lockdown and, as well as transporting people to work, our team is ready-and-waiting to help people enjoy all the gems this spectacular coastal region has to offer.
Fear not! It may have been a strange year, but summer has only just begun. We're celebrating the great British seaside by bringing back our Purbeck Breezer 30 and 70 routes from Sunday 19th July.
The world may be a little different, but there's never been a greater time to get the wind through your hair and experience the very best that the Dorset coast has to offer. The 30 takes on the Jurassic Coast all the way from Swanage to Weymouth stopping off at the renowned Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove - the perfect spot for a socially-distance picnic. The first and last journeys of the day also extend to Dorchester too! The 70 runs between Bournemouth and Poole by the hidden gem that is Alum Chine - with golden sands and crystal blue waters. These routes are part of our main network and so you can buy a dayrider ticket to use across all of our services.
morebus is the best way to get around the local conurbation including Poole, Bournemouth, Purbeck, Salisbury and the New Forest.
