* Students who have a First Group bus pass and want to travel to the Havant Campus but cannot, for whatever reason, use the SD4, SD5 or 654 service, can travel as far the South Downs Campus and change to Stagecoach bus service 37 or 39 and pay for that part of the journey.

Stagecoach have made the decision to withdraw the 727 service from Chichester, Southbourne, Westbourne and Emsworth. Students from these areas can still easily travel to the Havant Campus by using the 700 service and the South Downs Campus by using the 700 service and transferring to services 37 or 39 at Havant Bus Station.

Stagecoach have made the decision to withdraw the direct 30/31 service from Hayling Island to the South Downs Campus. Students can still travel on the 30/31 service but will then need to change to the 37 or 39 service at Havant Bus Station.
