Car Share Service
Following cessation of the no. 56 bus route through Baughurst, Wolverton and Ramsdell (with effect from 17 April 2010) a new car share service has been commissioned by Hampshire County Council.
The new service operates from 19 April 2010 and is similar to bus service, except that it will be operated with a private hire taxi and passengers must pre-book their journey.
It will pick up at bus stops in the area of Stony Heath, Pound Green, Baughurst (church), West Heath, Ramsdell, Charter Alley, Monk Sherborne and Sherborne St. John and take passengers to the North Hampshire Hospital or Basingstoke railway station. The service will run to the following timetable, but please note that only pre-booked points will be served so the route taken in the villages is at the discretion of the driver.
Initially, passengers should register for the service with Hampshire County Council by calling 01962 846786. Registration is free and you'll be sent membership information including details of the telephone number for bookings.
If you have any questions, please contact Graham Horn on 01962 845049 or Lisa Cook on 01962 846786
Full details will appear on bus stops and in various other suitable places, but will operate as follows:
