Bus to beach this summer

Heading to Southsea over the summer holidays? Why not take the bus to the beach and save time, money and stress.

Portsmouth City Council is once again adding an additional Park and Ride bus service, the PR3, that will take visitors straight to Southsea, and, once there, residents and visitors to Portsmouth will also be able to hop-on and hop-off the open top bus along the seafront, which the council is running this year in partnership with First Bus Solent, with tickets available on the bus. The services will start operating from Saturday 23 July every day until the end of the summer holidays on August 31.
