Routes and timetables.

Where will it pick me up?

The Cango services in Alresford/Basingstoke and Andover are hail and ride for most of the route. Booking is not required. Please see individual route leaflets for further details.

The Cango bus services in the New Forest have ‘timed’ and ‘bookable’ stopping points where you can get on. It is possible to catch the bus at the timed stopping points without pre-booking - but only if you are travelling to another timed stop.

How can I make a booking?

Bookings are only taken for the New Forest Cango services. To book these simply phone 0845 602 4135 and request your journey. If you require transport on a Saturday, you must book before 4pm on the Friday before travelling.

Calls to 0845 numbers are free on some BT call plans but will cost between 4p (local rate) and 6p (national rate) per minute for BT customers not on a plan. Calls made using other service providers or mobiles may cost more.
