About ZIP

With its own dedicated bus lane, the ZIP corridor has built-in bus priority – and that means reliable journey times for all your trips between Clanfield and Gunwharf Quays.

Because buses go first on the ZIP corridor, taking the ZIP 8 route lets you beat the traffic queues, avoid the stress of driving and say ‘no’ to the cost of petrol and parking.

You can plan your journey too, for greater freedom and flexibility, with reliable travel information on board, online and direct to your mobile.

Built-in bus priority

Operated by First Hampshire & Dorset, the ZIP 8 bus route runs from Clanfield in Hampshire down to Portsmouth City Centre and Gunwharf Quays.

The service operates on the ZIP Bus Priority Corridor, which uses a smart combination of bus-only lanes and special signals that give buses priority at busy junctions. This means a faster, more reliable journey for you, enabling you to plan your day and link up with onward travel connections.

Modern, comfortable, low-floor and low-emission, ZIP buses raise the bus travel experience to the next level. Whether you use ZIP for your daily commute to work or college, for shopping, family days or evenings out, the ZIP 8 route gives you more travel choices, enabling you to beat the traffic queues, avoid the stress of driving and say ‘no’ to the cost of petrol and parking.
