What is the Burley Taxishare (35)

It is a public transport service for passengers who need to travel from Lyndhurst, Burley or Ringwood Town Centre.

A taxishare is similar to a bus service only a 'taxi' picks passengers up instead of a bus. The service runs to a timetable just as a bus would, and passengers book themselves a seat to travel.

Where can I travel to?

Pre-booked passengers will be able to travel to and from Ringwood Town Centre, Burley, Burley Street or Lyndhurst Town Centre

The taxi will pick you up from your nearest bus stop from the following list:

  • Chubbs Farm (Burley)
     
  • Pound Farm (Burley)
     
  • Warnes Lane (Burley)
     
  • Coach House (Burley)
     
  • Queens Head (Burley)
     
  • Burley School (Burley)
     
  • Burley Street (Burley)
     
  • The Lyndhurst Park Hotel (Lyndhurst)
     
  • Crown Inn (Lyndhurst)
     
  • Meeting House Lane (Ringwood)
