Summer: Unilink diversions, New Forest Tour, First/Citybus memories

Unilink's Highfield Interchange has closed for the summer, meaning diversions and special timetables on all of their routes. The U2 (City Centre-Bassett Green) switches to its less frequent vacation timetable on Sunday 20th June. Night bus U1N (Leisure World-Airport) has already stopped running for the summer. They'll be back to normal from Monday 20th September.

Bluestar's New Forest Tour starts again on Saturday 19th June, running every day until Sunday 12th September inclusive. Times and fares information can be found here. It links Brockenhurst train station and Lyndhurst with Lymington, Beaulieu, the National Motor Museum and Exbury Gardens. If you use Wilts & Dorset routes 56/56A (City Centre-Lymington) or 112 (Hythe-Lymington) to get to the forest, buy your Tour ticket from the driver and your connection is free.

Bluestar 9 (City Centre-Waterside) will be diverted between Applemore and Dibden Purlieu for about a week from Wednesday 23rd June.

First are moving out of their depot in Portswood soon and are looking for your memories of the buses and trams that used to be based there.
