Park & Ride for the post-Christmas sales

13 December 2017, 12:00

Planning to hit the sales after Christmas? Got a gift to exchange or Christmas money to spend? We are adding more buses to our Park & Ride service to make travelling into Portsmouth easier during this busy time.

Buses will run more frequently, leaving the Park & Ride terminal every 7 minutes for most of the day on Boxing Day until Saturday 30 December. Passengers can alight at St Agatha's or Queen Street East for Cascades and city centre shopping, or The Hard Interchange for Gunwharf Quays. The last bus departs the Hard at 7:15pm on each of the five days, so shoppers can make the most of the later opening times.

We wish all our customers a very happy Christmas and we look forward to welcoming you back in 2018!

City Council shows support on World Prematurity Day

16 November 2017, 15:30

Portsmouth City Council will light the Hard Interchange and Park & Ride Terminal in purple this Friday in support of World Prematurity Day (17 November).

By lighting prominent buildings such as these, national charity Ickle Pickle aims to highlight the need for vital specialised equipment needed by neonatal units across the country.

Locally, the charity is fundraising so the neonatal unit at Queen Alexandra Hospital can purchase new incubators. This essential equipment mimics the womb and provides a warm, safe and sterile environment for small and sick babies. So far 20% of the £250,000 target has been raised.

The Ickle Pickle Partnership turns gifts and donations into specialised intensive care equipment, such as incubators and ventilators, to help neonatal units care for babies born too soon or with an illness.

For more information or to make a donation visit the Ickle Pickle site.

Park & Ride Portsmouth gets another stop!

8 November 2017, 17:00

In response to customer feedback, we've introduced a new stop to our route. The Cascades stop, which will be available from Friday 10 November, is handy for people wishing to visit Cascades Shopping Centre and the city centre shops. Perfect timing for Christmas shopping!

Our Park & Ride bus will stop at the existing St Agatha's bus stop on Marketway, which is just a two minute walk from Cascades Shopping Centre - and a little closer than the City Centre stop at Victoria Park. Passengers wishing to return to the Park & Ride terminal can use the stop opposite Victoria Park on Bishop Crispian Way.
