From Monday 30 March the Centre Shuttle will be operating on a 30 minute frequency from 7am until further notice, and we have asked that the bus must run as close to the current 7.24pm finish at the Leisure Park as possible (and no earlier).
Centre Shuttle is a frequent bus service linking the Leisure Park with the town centre, railway station and Basing View. Parking is free, just park your car in the designated Centre Shuttle area. Then catch the bus from the main Leisure Park bus stop into Basingstoke town centre.
Who can use the Centre Shuttle
The service is available for anyone wishing to get to the Leisure Park or Basing View. Bus users can change to other bus services at the rail station. The Centre Shuttle will appeal to:
- local workers travelling from Basingstoke Station to Basing View
- commuters who are having difficulty parking at Basing View or in the town centre
- Leisure Park users or Milestones Museum visitors travelling from the Railway Station or town centre
- shoppers who may wish to park more cheaply at the Leisure Park and travel into the town centre
- those wishing to visit attractions at both the town centre and the Leisure Park on the same day. Tickets are for all day travel on the service
The buses have low floor access but also have their own ramps if needed. There is plenty of space for wheelchairs at the front of the bus with padded back rests.
Times of operation
The service runs from the Leisure Park to the Station/Town Centre and on to Basing View (Monday to Friday). It runs approximately every 15 minutes, six days a week from:
- 7am, Monday to Friday
- 9.40am on Saturday
Basing View is only served from Monday to Friday from 7am to 7.32pm.
