Service 67 – Winchester to Petersfield.
Stagecoach will run all Monday to Saturday journeys, so there will no longer be the need to change buses at West Meon Hut to travel between Winchester and Petersfield.

Service 69 – Winchester to Fareham.
Morning peak journeys towards Winchester during school holidays will be rerimed to arrive earlier due to reduced volumes of traffic.

Service 86 – Winchester to Basingstoke.
Minor timetable revisions. Monday to Friday afternoon journeys from Winchester after 1500 will generally leave 5 minutes earlier and be allowed more time as far as Whitchurch to improve punctuality. The 0715 journey from Overton to Winchester will also run 5 minutes earlier to improve punctuality.

There are also changes to the network of services especially for Peter Symonds students, numbered PS1 to PS12. These buses may be used by anyone, and will provide some useful links, for example daytime journeys between Andover and Winchester.
