Portsmouth’s state-of-the-art new park-and-ride will be opening on Saturday 5 April. The new service will offer commuters and visitors to the city a quick, easy way into Portsmouth every day of the week, with a special introductory price of just £2 per day per vehicle (regular price £3.50).
The introductory offer lasts until 29 June and also provides savings on weekly, monthly and annual tickets, with a week-long pass costing only £9 while a month’s use of the service is available for £35.
The service will run every 12 minutes at peak times and will be operated by First Bus for Portsmouth City Council. Services start at 7.00am and the last bus leaves the city centre at 6.21pm.
The park-and-ride is conveniently located on the M275 at the entrance to the city and the service will stop at Portsmouth International Port, Charles Dickens’ birthplace, the city centre, The Hard for the Historic Dockyard and Gunwharf Quays. A map of the route is available at http://parkandride.portsmouth.gov.uk/maps.shtml.
Customers will travel on a fleet of brand-new double-decker buses with free Wi-Fi. New bus lanes into the city centre will also ensure the buses beat any traffic queues.
