Network changes from Monday 4, January 2016

The following changes will be made to Xelabus services from 4th January 2016:

Service X6/X7 – First Wessex are funding additional early morning Monday to Friday departure at 0705 from Eastleigh Bus Station to Fryern Hill.
The return journey will operate via Barton Peveril College arr 0750 (College days) and Eastleigh Bus Station arrive at 0800.

Service X9 – The 0811 arrival in Eastleigh has been very unreliable and we know many of our customers have asked if we can make this Journey more reliable. From 4th January this journey will depart Bishops Waltham 5 minutes earlier and the running time spread out more evenly to allow this service to get to Eastleigh on time.

In addition the section of route in Curdridge Lane through Lockhams Rd and Chapel Rd will be discontinued and all journeys will operate in both directions from Curdridge Lane via The Plantation to the B3035 at Curdridge Church.

Service X10 – The 0900 arrival in Southampton City Centre will be advanced to 0840 arrival at the request of a number of our customers. As a consequence running 20 mins earlier throughout.

Service X11 – This service will NO LONGER run beyond Southampton City Centre to Hedge End. It will only run between City Centre and Lordshill North on a revised timetable. Saturday service will be reduced significantly.

Service X14 – We will not continue to operate this service from 4th January and we understand it will not be replaced by Southampton CC

Service X15 – This timetable will change to give a more reliable service. It will no longer serve Oatlands Rd and Maddoxford Lane at Boorley Green.

A NEW timetable book will be available from early December.
