First changes: Focus on Portswood

There are big changes to First routes from 30th June. Today, a closer look at Portswood.

First have the 5 and the 7 between town and Portswood. The 5 currently runs via Bedford Place, but will be rerouted back to London Road and The Avenue, then on to Lodge Road as now. The 7 runs via Bevois Valley. Competition is provided by Unilink U6 via Bevois Valley, Bluestar 2 and 16 via Lodge Road, Unilink U1 via Winn Road and Bluestar P1, which is about to be replaced from 30th June by Wheelers W1 via Westwood Road.

Here is how First's times are changing to Portswood:

Generally Portswood is slightly better off, especially on Sundays, when the 7 will be running every 15 minutes.

Here are the main bus stops in Portswood:
