Fewer buses to run on upcoming holidays

Have your say

First Solent will operate reduced bus services on Boxing Day and New Year’s Day, and will not run at all on Christmas Day.

General manager Dervla McKay said buses would run every half hour on Boxing Day and New Year’s Day.

These will be on Service 1 from Eastney to Gunwharf, Services E1 and E2 from Gosport to Fareham, Service 3 from Fareham and Paulsgrove to Gunwharf, and Service 7 from Wecock Farm and Cosham to Portsmouth city centre and Southsea.

Ms McKay said: ‘This will enable customers to travel with us to the sales and visit friends and family on both days.’

On Christmas Eve, First Solent buses will finish at 8pm.
