Alton Bus Services
There will be some changes to local bus services during the road closure from 25 January 2019.
During the road closure period, all Stagecoach bus routes accessing Alton from the south will travel via the A31/Butts Road, not via Chawton Park Road.
Buses travelling south from Alton town centre will go via Butts Road and the A31, except for the No. 38 service.
The No. 38 will travel via Ackender Road, the B3349, Whitedown Lane and Chawton Park Road to reach Chawton and then continue its journey. We and Stagecoach are confident there is sufficient time in the schedule to accommodate this.
Those in the Chawton Park Road area are advised to join services at Butts Road or the reinstated bus stops near the Chawton roundabout on the A31.
Stagecoach service updates are now available on their website and can be accessed here.
We strongly recommend that users of Stagecoach services subscribe to Stagecoach South’s Twitter feed for service updates at https://twitter.com/stagecoachsouth. There is also a Stagecoach bus app for mobile available from the App Store and Google Play.
