Emsworth & District Motor Services are very sorry to announce that as of the 14th April 2018 we will not be running the following services: -
28 – Southbourne – Havant
28A – Southbourne, Emsworth – Horndean Technology School
635 – Horndean Technology School – Clanfield
636 – Denmead – Horndean Technology School
639 – Clanfield- Horndean- Oaklands School- Havant College
147 – Rowlands Castle – Bishop Luffa School
We are sorry for any inconvenience caused but these services are no longer economically viable to operate. The loss of the Hampshire County Council revenue and the loss of government BSOG funding mean that the services have had to run commercially since July 2016. We have tried our very best as a family firm to continue to serve the local community but unfortunately the operating costs exceed the bus revenue received including the concessionary fares received which are at an all-time low. Once again please accept our apologises. We do hope the Government and Hampshire Council will look at supporting Public Bus Services again as this is a nationwide problem.
If you have any concerns over these services can I suggest you contact your local County Councillors?
The 54, 91, 92, 93 Services will continue to Operate by West Sussex County Council.
