Text for bus times

Every bus stop in Poole has a sign with a unique 7 letter code, for example, pleawma. Simply text this code to 84268 and within seconds you will receive a message telling you the times of the next 3 buses from that stop.

The departure information will be displayed in the same format as the bus stop displays, for example, real time (M1 5 mins) or timetable information (M1 1414).

You can also receive information on a specific bus service:

  • text the code of the stop you are travelling from
  • add the bus service to the end of the code, for example, pleawma 15 (you must put a space between the bus stop code and service number)
  • text the code to 84268
  • in reply, you'll then receive a text telling you the times of the next 3 buses for your chosen service - return texts will be charged at 25p plus your standard network charges
