Welcome To the First in Hampshire & Dorset Enthusiasts' Website


Hello and a warm welcome to the First in Hampshire & Dorset bus enthusiasts' website!

This website is run by bus enthusiasts, for bus enthusiasts. We aim to provide a reliable source of information about the present day operations of First Hampshire & Dorset. We've got the latest news, (usually!) up to date fleetlists for every depot, and we try to keep up with the ever changing route allocations on the different services around the network. There is also a very active and friendly forum, where we welcome new members, whether you are local or distant. 

If you have any problems, or would like to get in touch with the webmaster, please use the "non login" box on the forum, and we will be in touch as soon as possible. 

Finally, a quick prod in the direction of the Provincial Society, which preserves Provincial's history in terms of buses, documents and more, and organises the annual Stokes Bay rally. Please note; this website has no official contact with First Hampshire & Dorset and is independent from the company.

Thank you for all of your hits over the years. Counter restarted on 2nd January 2017. 

I would like to thank all of the forum contributors and my other sources of information for their help in making this website a success - it could not be maintained without you.

Last Updated: Sun 9th April

Major updates to the Weymouth fleetlist. However, for all Solent areas there are minor changes across all three depots.
