Eclipse is Hampshire's priority bus network, designed to raise your bus travel experience to the next level. The Eclipse network links key towns and destinations in south east Hampshire, providing a viable alternative to car travel. This includes a 3.4km dedicated off-road busway between Redlands Lane in Fareham and Tichborne Way in Gosport.
Quality waiting facilities along the busway include comfortable seating, lighting and CCTV as well as real-time bus arrival information, while on-road bus priority measures ensure that the Eclipse services can make the most of the time gained on the busway to ensure reliable end-to-end journey times - a must for commuters.
A new, improved busway from Sunday 5 December 2021!
From 5 December 2021, E1 & E2 buses will serve the newly extended busway. The extended busway will make journeys faster and more reliable.
Residents of Tichborne Way, Forest Way and Fareham Road will be able to walk through to the new ‘Oakdene’ and ‘Leisure Centre’ bus stops on the busway.
