Whiteley Shopping Centre and local bus operator First Hampshire & Dorset have teamed up to provide the W1 and W2 services - two Saturday shuttle services for just £1!
The W1 and W2 will provide direct, frequent and cost effective travel between Fareham and Whiteley on the busiest day of the week for shopping and leisure. The announcement of the two shuttle services follows the successful opening of Whiteley’s leisure extension incorporating a nine screen Cineworld and six new restaurants. You can find the timetable for the W1 here and the timetable for the W2 is here.
Neil Carter, Centre Manager for Whiteley stated that, “We have been working on this initiative with First Bus for several months and I am very excited that the new shuttle service is now a reality. The shuttle will help customers and workers alike to significantly reduce travel time between the two destinations and, if successful, we plan to expand the shuttle to Sundays and bank holidays.”
Steve Hobbs, Commercial Business Manager for First Hampshire & Dorset, said: "We are delighted to be running this service for Whiteley Shopping Centre and hope it will encourage more people to consider using the bus instead of taking their cars to this ever-popular shopping centre."
