Plus Bus is a community transport service that operates in Southampton and the surrounding areas.
"This is an excellent service. I am 89½ and lack the physical ability to use public transport. Due to leg injuries, I find car travel difficult so the wonderful buses are ideal. The drivers are so thoughtful and provide the assistance I require without being asked. Thanks to Plus Bus I can still attend church and have been able to socialize due to your ‘partnership’ with walk, talk & eat trip. – Thank you for improving my life so dramatically"

"Excellent service and drivers always happy to help. I book it for my clients and it gives them independence that has been taken away. We struggled to get as many stroke patients help before Plus Bus"
