Fathers' Day offer / Summer Solstice shuttle

Above Bar Street and Pound Tree Road in town are being resurfaced, meaning diversions to several First and Bluestar routes. It all happens on Sun-Thurs evenings from this Sunday 17th June to Monday 25th June inclusive. Bluestar detail their diversions here.

Bluestar have a special offer to celebrate Fathers' Day this Sunday. Dads get to travel free as long as they are accompanied by a fare paying child! The offer only applies within the Southampton City boundary however, so no such luck for dads outside the city.

The summer solstice isn't far off now. Anyone who fancies heading to Stonehenge for the night of Wednesday 20th June should check out Wilts & Dorset's all-night shuttle service between Salisbury train station and Stonehenge. As well as the train to Salisbury, you can also use W&D X7 from Southampton or W&D 34 from Romsey, but of course the trains run later.

Xelabus have realised that they've launched the X8 between Eastleigh and Marwell Zoo and have finally published the timetable on their website. The rush hour journeys to/from Fair Oak are made a bit clearer on there than they appear on the Traveline timetables, which get the route incorrect for a couple of journeys.
