Message from the Managing Director
Welcome to the City Red website for Southampton. Here, you will find all the information you need, including timetables, maps, tickets and the new Journey Planner, to make your travel with us as pleasant and easy as possible.
In the past three years, we have invested more than £7 million in our Southampton fleet with the purchase of 47 new buses.
Most of the new buses now operate on our high frequency City Red routes which provide high quality services across Southampton.
In order to make your journey as easy as possible, most of our buses are fitted with a system that announces the name of the next stop as you travel on your journey.
This helps customers who are new to the area to know where to alight and also for our regular customers who may be engrossed in a book.
Please use our website, which is regularly updated, to plan your travel with us. Do contact us if you have any comments or cannot find the information you need. We do value feedback from customers in order to continually improve our services to you.
