Now that senior citizens can travel free by bus throughout England, it is an opportune time to look at what is available from Swaythling to begin the journey. Bluestar bus 2 from Stoneham Lane runs every quarter of an hour during the day and half hourly in the evening to Eastleigh Bus Station, very handy for Sainsbury’s, Lidl or The Point, and then goes on to Fairoak. From Eastleigh there are buses, half-hourly during daytime, to Winchester. Less well known is the hourly bus A, which may be boarded in Wide Lane at Walnut Avenue and goes to the Hedge End superstores where it connects with the number 15 to Hamble. The last two A buses leave Eastleigh Bus Station at 21.55 and 23.15. The latter is later than the last number 2 bus.

Don’t forget the hourly number 14 that will take you to Bitterne from the stop in Stoneham Lane.
