Emsworth & District Motor Services is sorry to announce that the following bus services will no longer operate as from 14 April 2018

No 28: Southbourne -> Havant                                                                                                                                                                                  No 28A:  Southbourne -> Emsworth -> Horndean Technology School                                                                                                                No 635: Horndean Technology School -> Clanfield                                                                                                                                                No 636: Denmead -> Horndean Technology School                                                                                                                                               No  639: Clanfield -> Horndean -> Oaklands School -> Havant College                                                                                                           No 147: Rowlands Castle -> Bishop Luffa School

Sadly, these services are no longer economically viable to  operate. The loss of the Hampshire County Council revenue and the loss of government funding mean that the services have had to run commercially since July 2016 and, whilst, as a family firm, Emsworth and District Motor Services have tried their very best to continue to serve the local  community, the operating costs now exceed the revenue received. They do hope that the Government and Hampshire County Council will look at supporting Public Bus Services again.

The 54, 91, 92 and 93 services will continue to be operated by West Sussex County Council
