Westbourne Parish Council has approved a taxi-bus running between The Square in Westbourne (close to Libby’s cafe) to Emsworth Town Centre at 9am on Tuesdays and Saturdays. There is a return at 12:30pm from the drop-off point in Emsworth.
The Parish Council is funding the taxi-bus in response to the loss of the number 28 bus which connected Westbourne to Havant. The taxi-bus will enable residents to access the 700 bus from Emsworth, which runs between Havant and Chichester, as well as other important services and facilities.
Concessionary travel and bus pass holders are free. All others will be charged £1 each way. The service is run by Mr Matt Cane, a registered taxi driver in a eight-seater vehicle (silver which pink design). If a second trip is required due to more than eight people, the driver will return for a second journey.
Taxi-bus timetable - Tuesdays and Saturdays
Leaves Westbourne: 9.15am | Leaves Emsworth: 12.30pm
