There are regular buses to and from Weymouth, although not directly to the gate of the YOI. Most frequent is the First Line No. 1 bus, which leaves from the back of Debenhams Department Store in the centre of Weymouth at intervals of approximately ten minutes during weekdays and Saturdays (the service is regular but less frequent on Sundays). This bus drops off at Grove Corner, which is a walk of about half a mile from the YOI.
