The Portland Coaster travels from Weymouth down to Portland Bill via Wyke Regis and Portland Castle; the X52 runs from Monkey World across to Bridport via Lulworth Cove, Durdle Door and West Bay.

A spokesperson for First Wessex said: “First Wessex’s go-as-you-please Wessex unlimited travel tickets are great value and allow customers to stop off where they want and for as often as they like. The tickets are also available on the Portland Coaster and other First Wessex buses.

To make it even easier to enjoy the summer by bus, First Wessex has also teamed up with Yellow Buses so that customers can use Wessex unlimited travel tickets on Yellow Bus routes across the Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole conurbation until September 4th.”
