The Hoverbus operates a circular route from Southsea Terminal to:

  • Commercial Road - for Portsmouth & Southsea Station, Cascades Shopping Centre, The Guildhall and City Museum.
  • Returning to Southsea Terminal via bus stops for the University buildings and Southsea Shopping Centre.

Passengers are able to alight and board the bus at stops along the bus route, in addition to those shown on our timetable.

The Hoverbus is designed to connect with both the arrival and departure of the hovercraft, however this can't always be guaranteed due to (but not limited to) traffic or late arrivals of the Hovercraft.
