Bus service levels in Andover were increased from 30th August 2020.
We have extensive enhanced measures to keep buses clean and passengers and staff safe and ensure people can feel confident about using our buses. Our enhanced cleaning regime includes at least daily cleaning of all buses with a particular focus on key touch points, and additional in service cleaning where possible.
All buses will continue to have a protective screen to provide a physical barrier between the driver and passenger.
In line with government policy, customers using our services are now required to wear a face covering.
Social distancing measures are now in place on all bus services. Where possible we will provide duplicate services on busy journeys.
We are currently running an exact fare system, so our drivers will be unable to give you change. We strongly encourage contactless payments or you can buy mobile tickets on our app, to keep our staff and customers a little safer.
Our town services across Andover have broadly returned to normal frequencies. However the times of individual journeys may have changed, so please use the links below to check the times.
Activ8 will return to almost the same timetable as ran pre-COVID. The extra evening journeys between Andover and Tidworth are restored, as are the 2050 Andover to Salisbury and 2205 salisbury to Andover journeys on Sundays and Public Holidays. Extra journeys may run at school times to cope with the numbers wishing to travel.
Services 66, 67 and X67 will run to slightly revised times as requested by Wiltshire Council. One afternoon journey will start from Laverstock Schools and run as service 667.
Service 76 is slightly revised but will remain at every 30 minutes between Whitchurch and Basingstoke. Because of revised college times at Queen Mary College the 676 will not operate, but from 21st September one of the two buses due to arrive in Basingstoke at 0841 will extend to the college, arriving 0850
Service 85 and college buses 851 and 852 will operate much as last year. Students wishing to get to Sparsholt College for the 1030 start should use the 0915 85 which will continue from Winchester to the college as Service 607. *NEW* from 21st September there will be an additional service 852 from Andover to Peter Symonds College at 1315, returning at 1350.
