After holding talks with operator Emsworth & District last month, Hayling Island Labour Party is hoping that the trial will encourage a financial subsidy from Hampshire County Council towards a permanent service.

The bus, which runs in 40-minute cycles, will call at Eastoke Corner, Beachlands & Ferry Point. Tickets cost £1.
