A NEW express Sunday shopper bus service has come up trumps for passenger Simon Sheppard.

The Poole father of five, who also has nine grandchildren, won £250 in shopping vouchers in a prize draw to mark the launch of Yellow Buses’ new 1x service.

The route links Bournemouth Square and Poole Bus Station in just 22 minutes and operates only on Sundays and public holidays.

The first bus from Bournemouth’s Gervis Place is at 0843 and Poole Bus Station at 0838 with the last at 1743 and 1738 respectively.

“It’s convenient, quick and easy’ said Simon, who described winning the prize draw as a “complete surprise.”

Gareth Edwards, Yellow Buses’ Customer Services Manager, said: “We’re very pleased with the launch of the 1x and congratulate Simon on his success.

“The 1x is proving very popular with passengers who want to get from Bournemouth to Poole in the quickest possible time.”
