It's now easier to travel from A to B to sea!

There's now a more convenient, stress-free way to travel around the Solent.
The new Solent Go travelcard makes travelling by bus and ferry easier than ever.

How it works

Solent Go is a handy travelcard you top up as you go, making travel all over South Hampshire – including Southampton, Portsmouth, Winchester, Havant and more – easier than ever before.

All you have to do is sign up online and wait for your Solent Go travelcard to arrive in the post, then top it up online and tap when boarding buses and ferries to travel. Simple!
