Outbound and Return Journey Advice

The Park and Ride (P&R) buses run from 06.25 until 19.52 Monday to Friday and from 06.55 to 18.51 on Saturdays.  The last buses back from town to the car parks run at approximately 19.30 on a Weekday and 18.30 on a Saturday.  Please check on the timetable for specific stop details and timings.

The bus route runs between the East Winchester car parks and the South Winchester car park (via Pitt car park), with stops in the City Centre, Railway Station and along Romsey Road. There is no Park and Ride bus service on Sundays or Bank Holidays.

Each bus stop is either for buses heading for the East Park and Ride car parks (Barfield and St Catherines) or for buses heading to the South Winchester P&R car park (via the Pitt car park). All bus stops are clearly labelled showing to which car parks the buses are heading and all buses show their destination on the front display.

If you find that you have boarded a bus going in the wrong direction, you can:

  1. Ask your driver for information.
  2. Get off at the next stop, cross the road and find a flag or bus stop heading the right direction.
  3. Alternatively, stay on the bus which will eventually loop around the City and back to all car parks, though this may take some time!
