The train operator is organising 200 coaches/buses each day to provide road links for travel from nine Southern stations into nearby neighbouring train networks where they can connect into other train operators’ services.

Locally, buses will link Chichester and Havant.

Aslef, which represents train drivers, is leading the strikes in a row with Southern over the removal of guards without consultation.
