THE Greyhound bus service that runs from Portsmouth and Fareham to London is to be scrapped.

The company says not enough passengers are using the service in Hampshire, which also operates from the Isle of Wight and Southampton, despite more services being added in December last year to ‘satisfy customer demand’.

The service’s last day will be November 17.

In a statement, the company said: ‘We would like to thank our Solent customers for travelling with Greyhound UK, and can assure them that they will continue to enjoy the same quality service right up until we stop operating.

‘Greyhound UK will continue to operate its successful and popular services between Cardiff and Swansea and will look at any other new opportunities as they arise.’
