There's busloads to discover with First Bus!

Busloads of amazing sights to see and new memories to make, busloads of evenings out with old friends and funny selfies to take, from pub quizzes with mates to that special first date, with free museums to explore and cocktails to pour... because when travel costs less, you can do a whole lot more.

Let us get you where you need to be, with great value fares across all of Fareham, Gosport and Portsmouth:

We already have great value singles available across Solent. Now, thanks to Help for Households, we'll have £2 singles available across the Hampshire zone.

Contracted school services are excluded from the £2 bus fare cap.

If your journey requires multiple buses to reach your destination the £2 single fare will not cover the entire trip, as you would have to purchase the £2 single fare for each bus you use. Please check your fare before traveling as purchasing separate £2 single fares may still be the cheaper option. 

The new £2 single fare cap offers excellent value for money and can be paid on our buses by contactless devices (bank card, smartphone or smartwatch). If paying by cash and to help our staff, it would be appreciated if the exact fare is tendered.

Portchester Castle

Provides the perfect setting for a relaxed, fun, historic day out. The castle’s commanding location has made it a major factor in the Solent's defences for hundreds of years. The most impressive and best-preserved of the Roman 'Saxon Shore' forts, Portchester Castle was originally built in the late 3rd century. An exhibition in the keep interprets the history of the castle and Portchester village, and displays finds excavated on site.
