Bus passengers were treated to breakfast goodies on Tuesday as they made their way through the newly redeveloped bus station in Winchester on their morning commute.
Celebrating the opening of the bus station after two months of works by Winchester City Council to modernise the station, a team from Stagecoach were on hand to give passengers travel advice and breakfast treats as buses used the new stands and took a different route through the area.
Improvements to the bus station facilities include real time information for passengers waiting for their buses as well as making the pedestrianised area safer for the public when they pass through.
Operations Manger Pete Robinson said 'improvements to the bus station will be greatly received by residents and visitors to Winchester alike. It really helps improve the journey experience form start to finish. With our modern fleet of Kings City vehicles and a pleasant environment to wait for the bus in now, it all helps encourage people to use the bus more often and leave their cars at home.
Stagecoach services are now departing from different stands as they now enter the bus station from The Broadway and leave via Friarsgate and turn onto Tanner Street, then Silver street before joining normal routes on Georges Street.
