CENTENARY
Bournemouth & District Motor Services was registered in 1916. The company quickly spread further afield and changed its name to Hants & Dorset in 1920.
Following the nationalisation of the railways and with the Southern Railway as a major shareholder, Hants & Dorset became state owned in 1948.
In 1983 the company was split into Hampshire Bus, Provincial and Wilts & Dorset. These companies were sold in 1987 and most Wilts & Dorset routes have since become morebus who, in July 2016, celebrated the centenary of the original company.
Money raised during the event was donated to Julia's House.

A wet start to the day but that didn't seem to put people off.
By the time the sun came out in the afternoon, Poole Quay was crowded with people catching buses to Alderney West, Bournemouth Pier, Sandbanks Ferry, and Lytchett School.
