The three new routes, number 20, 21 and 23, mean that there are now buses every 10 minutes between Southsea, Portsmouth and Leigh Park, making it convenient for getting around the city. You can even go from city to sea on the new 23 route, meaning a bit of seaside fun isn’t far away either. All the new routes are colour coded too so it’s even easier to spot which bus route you need.
And with the new routes come brand new buses, which all have luxury seating as well as all the latest on-board technology like USB charging points and free Wi-Fi – so not only is travelling on the bus convenient, it’s comfortable too.
It’s not just a great service Stagecoach are putting on either, as they have great value tickets available for travelling around Portsmouth, as well as the wider Havant and Waterlooville areas. You can even get an unlimited £2.50 Nightrider if you’re travelling after 7pm across the whole of the Stagecoach South network (excluding the N700 service).
Tickets are available on the bus, but gone are the days of rooting around for change, as all buses are now able to process contactless payments. If you want to get your ticket in advance you can search and plan your journey on the Stagecoach mobile app too (available on both Apple and Google app stores) and get your ticket ready for your buses arrival.
Then come and join us on Tuesday 10th October on Commercial Road Portsmouth as we’ll be celebrating with Stagecoach. Our Heart Angels will be there with Drivetime’s Dan Mills between 10am and 2pm with some fun and games and helping you find out all about the new routes, buses and how easy it is to get around the city. They’ll also be giving you the chance to win money off of your bus travel and even free bus travel for a year too!
But not only will we be celebrating the launch on the streets, we’ll also be giving you the chance to win some Bose Wireless Headphones, a Samsung Galaxy Tablet and £100 on air.
