You can now travel in and around Southampton for £1 for a single journey after 6pm on Bluestar and City Red buses.


“The offer is available on all routes and all fare zones, so is perfect for getting around Southampton or visiting nearby towns and cities this festive season,” says Southampton City Council.

“The new 'tap on tap off’ system works with this limited time offer. If travelling after 6pm, a fare of just £1 will be automatically recognised for any single journey.”

The offer runs for an unspecified “limited time”.
