Revised X8A bus route provides better access to vital services for local people in Blandford

People living and working in Blandford will find it easier than ever to travel around the town - thanks to a revised Damory bus route. 

The Damory X8A will now serve Whitecliff Mill Street, following a suggestion from two of the bus operator’s staff after feedback from customers.

“We’re pleased to be offering this route revision, which now takes in two doctors surgeries, a health clinic, residential housing and Ryan Court retirement apart-ments,”  said Damory assistant operations manager, Bob Crutchfield. 

“Two of my colleagues - husband and wife Brian and Teri Wareham - are local to the area and felt we could better serve our customers here by altering the route slightly. 

“The result means people living in the area have easier access to key local services - and we’re delighted to be able to make this positive change.

“We’re always on the lookout for ways to make travelling by bus a more attractive option, and we expect the enhanced X8A to be well received by local people.”
