Southampton to Eastleigh via Bitterne, Thornhill, Hedge End, Botley, Boorley Park, Fair Oak

Bus Stop Changes: Bargate Street, Southampton

2nd Jun onwards

From Sunday 2nd June, the bus stops at Bargate Street will be merged for our Bluestar 3, 16 and 18 services towards Bitterne, and it will become a 'rolling bus stop'. This means buses will pull to the front of the stop, and subsequent arrivals will queue up behind, rolling forward as space becomes available until departure time. Please check the destination on the front or side of the bus before boarding, or if you are in any doubt, just ask the driver.

Event and Road Closures: Fair Oak Carnival - Sandy Lane/Fair Oak Road

29th Jun

Please be aware that many roads in Fair Oak will be closed on Saturday 29th June between 1-4pm for the Fair Oak Carnival Procession, affecting Bluestar 2 and 3. Bluestar 2 will be unable to serve any of the Fair Oak loop, and will instead divert after Underwood Road / Fair Oak Road continuing onto Alan Drayton Way where they will terminate at a temporary stop just after Olympic Way. Buses will then turn right onto Fair Oak Road to rejoin normal route back to Eastleigh. Unfortunately this means we will be unable to serve any stops at Stokewood Surgery & New Clock Inn (both directions) and New Road, Victena Road, Winchester Road, Witt Road, Fair Oak Square or Dean Road. Customers for Fair Oak Square are advised to use Bluestar 3 if viable, as it is less affected than Bluestar 2 (see below). Bluestar 3 from Eastleigh will run via Eastleigh Road and turn right onto Botley Road to Horton Heath. Buses to Eastleigh will do the same in reverse. Buses will be unable to serve Fair Oak Square or Shorts Road in both directions. A temporary stop towards Hedge End will be placed on Eastleigh Road near Oak Walk. Customers towards Eastleigh are advised to use Dean Road. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
