First changes: Focus on Aldermoor Road / 300 & W1 timetables

Stop press: Here's a preview of the timetable for Velvet 300 to Ringwood from 22nd July:

Another preview: Wheelers W1 to Romsey from 1st July:

Not the most direct route. Here's the full stop listing:

Traveline's map shows how indirect the route is at the Romsey end:

Back to our series on First's upcoming changes now.

First are changing many routes on 30th June. We're focusing on a different area each day to see how it will be affected. Today we look at the current 2A route from Lordshill to town, via Aldermoor Road, General Hospital and Millbrook.

On this side of the city, it will be renumbered 12. It will still run through to the East of the city, but there it will run to the current 2 route to Townhill Park. Here's how new 12 will look:

Here's the summary of how the timetable is changing between Lordshill and town:

Thank goodness we see an end to the current situation where there are evening buses on the 2A which run to the 2 route, i.e. not via Aldermoor Road. The 12 will run via General Hospital and Aldermoor Road every evening. Great for anyone in Millbrook who works at or needs to visit someone at the General.

See the full new timetable for the 12 here and details of all changes to First routes from 30th June here.

Next up: Millbrook

  1. The W1 looks fairly promising, and appears to be a useful complement to Bluestar 4, with comparable journey times too. It will be interesting to see how it fares.
