RANK UP! Gosport enhances transport offerings with new taxi rank and bus interchange


Residents and visitors of Gosport will soon experience improved public transport services with a new taxi rank.


Starting 25 January, a relocated taxi rank and passenger drop-off point will be operational on South Street, adjacent to the current bus station. This change marks the completion of the first phase of the new bus interchange.

The existing taxi rank and parking spaces near Falkland Gardens will be closed on the same day to facilitate the construction of the new interchange. Additional features, including a new shelter for the taxi rank, will be installed in late February, with final landscaping works scheduled for later in the year.


These enhancements are part of a broader public transport improvement initiative by Hampshire County Council, funded by the Government’s Transforming Cities Fund and a £700,000 contribution from Gosport Borough Council.


Councillor Nick Adams-King, the County Council’s Cabinet Lead Member for Universal Services, said: “Having completed this stage of the Gosport Bus Interchange improvement scheme, work can now start on constructing the new bus interchange with the expectation of full completion later in the summer.

"We appreciate that the construction work is causing some local disruption, but this is unavoidable and we’re doing all that we can to minimise any inconvenience. I would like to thank everyone for their continued patience.


"Once finished, the result will be a package of improvements that will make it easier to travel around Gosport and beyond, by public transport, on foot or on a bicycle. This scheme will also unlock further planned redevelopment to support Gosport’s historic town centre and the economic vibrancy of the town.”
