This project secured £4.5m of Government investment to improve the quality of bus travel in South Hampshire between 2012 and 2014. 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.

Across South Hampshire, in total 565 buses were fitted with on-bus wi-fi and 137 buses were refurbished. All interventions were delivered by end of March 2014.
