Bus service list

This is a list of the main services operating within the Borough boundary. Services 7C and 52 are school / college services but the general public can use them. Timetables for each service are available on the relevant bus company's web site, but the most convenient reference is Hampshire County Council's Travel Guide for the Havant area (external link), currently updated for the changes made in April 2017.

An up to date bus network map showing the key routes (shopper and schools services are omitted) is available on Open Streetmap (external link) - this link takes you to Havant town centre from where you can pan around the area, although if you zoom out the service numbers disappear (they re-appear as you zoom back in).
