Neil Chapman, Managing Director of Hovertravel said:

“The new bus not only looks great, but it is also more comfortable, better for the environment and up to date with the latest technology, giving an overall better travel experience for Hovertravel customers.”

Hovertravel’s Hoverbus is the perfect way to travel around Portsmouth and Southsea for just £1.30 per single journey per child & £1.50 per adult. Not only will the Hoverbus take you to and from the Hoverport at Southsea Seafront for your quick and easy trips to the Isle of Wight, but it will also take you around Portsmouth & Southsea.

The Hoverbus conveniently stops at The Hard Interchange which is ideal for onward travel by buses, trains at Portsmouth Harbour Station and coaches, Gosport Ferry and Gunwharf Quays. This also makes travelling to Portsmouth’s Historic Dockyards including the fabulous new Mary Rose Museum and Spinnaker Tower hassle-free.
