YOUR BUS is budget friendly and helps Hampshire and its future

Hampshire County Council is working with bus operators Stagecoach, First Solent and Bluestar (a subsidiary of Go South Coast) to make bus services simpler, easier and more convenient. This spring we are rolling out more frequent daytime, evening and weekend bus services across Hampshire as well as more brand-new buses that are good for the environment.

YOUR BUS helps Hampshire
and its future

When more of us choose to use the bus, it means fewer cars on the road, resulting in less pollution and cleaner air.

Most buses running in Hampshire are very low emission diesel, and over 60 brand new Solent Electric buses are being introduced on services in the Fareham, Gosport, Locks Heath and Lowford area this spring.

YOUR BUS helps the environment

If every person in Great Britain switched just one car journey for bus or coach per month each year (13 per year) by 2030 it would create a cumulative reduction of 2 million tonnes of CO2. (CPT 2022)

As part of the Bus Service Improvement Partnership (BSIP), Hampshire County Council has allocated £4.2 million of Government funding to Stagecoach South, Go South Coast, and First Solent to enable operators to increase service levels on 15 Hampshire bus routes. This will result in more daytime and evening services and see three new services introduced on Sundays. 

The County Council has also allocated funds from the BSIP allocation to promote a community bus campaign targeted at young adults. The campaign promotes the service expansion with aims to spotlight the outstanding services that are accessible to Hampshire residents, not only for young adults but for bus users of all ages.

The funding comes from Hampshire’s £7.2 million share of the Department for Transport’s (DfT) Bus Service Improvement Plan Plus (BSIP+) money. It has been awarded in line with the DfT’s direction that the majority should be used to protect existing commercial services that might otherwise see reduced timetables and to fund more frequent services.
