We've made it easy for you to get about over the festive period with our local bus services, only taking a break on Christmas day. So why not leave the car at home when you head off to do your Christmas shopping, there's less parking fuss when you travel by bus!

There are even late night services to get you home from those festive get togethers, plus with our Nightrider ticket unlimited travel after 7pm is only £2.50!

You can find  what routes and timetables we're running below, just  find your local area tab, and select to view service levels.

Our famous Santa buses are back for 2017 too!

You can find them in Basingstoke and Portsmouth, decked with Christmas decorations and Santa at the wheel. They also collect for our nominated charities which this year are St Micheal's Hospice in Basingstoke and Dementia Friends in Portsmouth.

The buses will be out from 11 December until the run up to Christmas. Timetables can be viewed and downloaded below.

Christmas friends

Let us get you home over the festive season...

Don't forget that we have services that run late into the evening, so we can help get you and your friends home from the office Christmas party or New Years celebrations. Our nightrider ticket is just £2.50 which allows you unlimited travel across the whole of the Stagecoach South network. 

The Nightliner N700 service between Brighton, Shoreham, Worthing and Durrington is running on New Year's Eve, so that means you can stay out until the small hours knowing you can count on us to get you home. The last bus from Brighton departs at 3.30am. There is a flat fare of £4 which is great value.
