Message from the Managing Director
Welcome to the First Wessex website for services in Weymouth, Dorchester, Portland, Bridport, Axminster and south Somerset.
Here, you will find all the information you need, including timetables, maps, tickets and the Journey Planner to make your travel with us as pleasant and easy as possible.
If you’re staying in Weymouth, South or West Dorset for your holiday, we have an extensive range of buses that can beat the car on cost and convenience.
Our local Wessex buses serve all of Weymouth, Dorchester and Portland, while our Jurassic Coasters serve the spectacular coastline from Poole in the east to Lyme Regis and Axminster in the west via West Bay and Bridport, with stunning views to be had from the top deck of the bus.
We have open top buses too in the summer which are a family favourite, the colourful Portland Coaster runs between Weymouth beach and town centre to Portland Bill lighthouse and our open top Jurassic Coaster X52 runs between Monkey World, Bovington Tank Museum, Lulworth Cove, Durdle Door, Weymouth, Abbotsbury, West Bay and Bridport, providing spectacular views of Chesil Beach. With a selection of simple, attractive and value for money tickets available from the bus driver and our First Bus App, there’s no better way to see beautiful Dorset with Wessex.
Please use our website, which is regularly updated, to plan your travel with us. Do contact us if you have any comments or cannot find the information you need. We do value feedback from customers in order to continually improve our services for you.
