Transport to and from Uplyme

The Bus

The main bus service through Uplyme is the No.31 service from Weymouth to Axminster via Dorchester, Bridport and Lyme Regis.  The No.31 is run by First Group



Getting to Axminster railway station from Uplyme:


On weekdays and Saturdays, the No.31 bus runs an hourly service to Axminster railway station from just outside the Talbot Arms, taking about 10 minutes to get there. Click here for the 31 timetable.


Unfortunately, this service is often late, especially in the Summer when the roads are more crowded, so do not rely on it if you have a tight transfer at Axminster.


On Sundays the service runs every other hour.


Getting to Lyme Regis from Uplyme:


On weekdays and Saturdays, the No 31 leaves the Talbot Arms (opposite side of road - beside phone box) and arrives about 10 minutes later in Lyme Regis Post office on Broad St.


Please note the bus stop for your return trip to Uplyme is situated at the bottom of the hill in the Square near the Rock Point pub ie - NOT where you are dropped off at the Post Office.


On Sundays the service runs every other hour.


Getting further afield by bus:


It is possible to take the No.31 bus as described above to Lyme Regis and then to change to the X53 service in the Square. This 'Jurassic Coast' service runs approx every two hours and takes you to Exeter in the West and Poole in the East and several stops in between.

The Car


The most environmentally hostile way of getting to and from the village is of course the car.  The village is on the B3165 which runs south from the A35 at Raymond's Hill south to Lyme Regis. 



Over the more populated lengths of the B3165, it has been assigned a 30MPH maximum speed limit although there are some drivers who do not comply with this limit as they are exempt from such restrictions. 


Road Safety Forum

There is a forum in the Uplyme Debate discussing issues related to road safety in the village.


Click here to read the views of the members and join in if you have something to say on the subject.
