So very recently there has been a SWT liveryed bus which has appeared on the 13th seen twice by myself and Tom on the Wessex Way (Bournemouth) and again twice in one day. were baffled by this and are trying to hunt it down for some photos we'd love to hear any other sighting of this bus and to tell us more about it.

ahh wow what kind of services does it run? As there is currently only one and we've spotted it mainly around Bournemouth station. i'm assuming being run by Stagecoach it is operating services for the station.

These buses used to be on Megabus work but when the Neoplan Skyliners arrived, this resulted in a surplus of Olympians which Stagecoach would be good as high capacity rail replacement buses because they can easily seat 88.

However, Winchester's dedicated Megabus Olympians have been playing up of late, resulting in some SWT liveried Olympians back on thier old haunts! I had the pleasure of riding 13646 on a Soton- Winchester Megabus working a few weeks back!! Which may explain your sighting of SWT liveried Olympians in Bournemouth, covering Megabus duties.

I see... still doesn't explain what it was doing at the girls school as Megabuses have never run there. But yes thats cleared it all sufficiently.
