Explore the beautiful South Downs using our friendly Sunday summer bus link.

It is funded by Cross-Country Trains and operated by Bluestar buses. Connecting Winchester railway station to Petersfield railway station via a scenic country route through pretty villages and giving stunning views from high points along the way.

It is a normal bus service so you can board or alight at any bus stop. You don’t need to pre-book or pay in advance. Contactless payments makes things easy to pay your fare, or the usual passes are accepted. The South Downs Rambler bus is ideal for walkers and ramblers using the South Downs Way, so why not make the bus part of your walk itinerary?

It is also ideal for anyone wishing to simply sit back, relax, and enjoy a car-free day out. Travel by rail to either station, then board the bus to visit Winchester Science Centre, Hinton Ampner House(NT) or Old Winchester Hill. If you prefer,there are several lovely country pubs on or close to the route including at Exton, West Meon, Bramdean and East Meon.

Of course,Petersfield and Winchester are worth exploring in their own right too. Full details giving the dates of operation, the bus times and fares will soon be available on the Three Rivers website.

Three Rivers Community Rail Partnership is a not-for-profit organisation that exists to promote use of the local railway and encourages volunteers to look after smaller stations.

Involvement with the local community is a key part of what we do.

We organise bus links from stations that provide access for rail users to reach places which are not usually served by public transport.

We encourage and support a range of activities at stations such as litter-picks and gardening and provide community use of spare room space we have opened up at some stations.

We run ‘Try the Train’ sessions for schools and Scouts, organise nature walks and generally try to make using the railway more fun and less daunting.
