Transport of delight over new city link I’m writing to say that I’m thrilled that we now have a direct bus from Bournemouth to Southampton, the new Dorset Sprinter X5/X55.

With Southampton only being just over an hour away and having the best shops, the new Ikea and my children’s favourite swimming pool we are very excited as a family to now be able to get there.

The train has always been very expensive and Wilts and Dorset stopped their coach service.

We will be using the new service regularly.

It’s just a pity it couldn’t have started in the school holidays!
