A new bus operator has taken over some of the routes that operates from the new Andover bus station. Wheelers bright orange bus’s started their new contract from Monday 5th January. Wheelers brings a new network of routes serving Andover and the local estates as well as rural links to Stockbridge and Salisbury.

These are all operated with support from Hampshire County Council, who’s grants help to subsidised theseĀ  new routes.

    So the “replacement” for the Stagecoach 77 is Wheeler’s 15? I challenge anyone to travel to Stockbridge from Andover on this and get back the same day!

    I don’t know who decided on the new timetable,but I’d like to thank them for not providing a bus from Abbotts Ann that I can to/from work on. I can either walk or get a taxi. Or maybe I should just give up work after 17 years and rely on the state to keep me eh?

    Also entertaining, of course, to watch the hourly attempt to squeeze a bus down the already vehicular-challenged South Street… I’ve already almost lost my fence to these things twice in the one week they’ve been running, whose ridiculous idea was this?
    (On an unrelated note, a proof reader for this website is sorely needed; the amount of grammatical errors in these articles make my head hurt!)
