In addition to investment in transport infrastructure, as part of a balanced investment programme, Solent Transport has secured funding for a number of transport projects and programmes that operate across the Solent area.
Better Connected South Hampshire Local Sustainable Transport Fund (LSTF)
This project has delivered £31m of investment into a range of sustainable transport interventions. These include:
- Investment in physical infrastructure to encourage the use of sustainable transport on nine key corridors
- The introduction of My Journey - a behavioural change and travel awareness programme to encourage more sustainable travel in the area
- The launch of the Solent Go - a region wide travelcard that can be used on most buses, ferries and the hovercraft.
Better Bus Area Fund (BBAF) – this project has secured £4.5m of Government investment to improve the quality of bus travel in South Hampshire. The funding has been used to refurbish buses, provide "Next Stop" bus audio-visual information, real time bus information, on board Wi-Fi internet access. BBAF has funded the tryabus.co.uk marketing campaign that raises awareness of these improvements. Click here to find out more details.
