Travel in Portsmouth

In recent years we’ve made a lot of improvements to how people can travel in Portsmouth. You may have seen some of the work we’ve done but it isn’t always clear how different things fit together to make bigger improvements for the whole city.

With the help of the local community, we’ve developed a Transport Strategy which creates a route map for how the city will become safer and healthier place for everyone, with road networks that support the growth of the city.

Just imagine in 2040, Portsmouth is a city with easy travel. Fewer journeys are made by car because we have excellent public transport connections between bus, train, cycling and walking routes, making it easier and more enjoyable to be out and about.

Read our special edition Travel Portsmouth magazine to find out about everything we’re doing. This was sent to all households in Portsmouth in February 2023.
