#AYearOfBuses 7: The Star Portsmouth – Wecock Farm

Plain sailing into day 7 of #AYearOfBuses, we’re heading to the South Coast today for First’s The Star

The Star launched in 2013 with a fleet of 26 new Wright Streetlites, wearing a deep purple livery and a new name reflecting the identity of the city of Portsmouth. In fact, each bus is named after a naval vessel or historic ship, with unique designs for the exterior of each vehicle and snippets of naval slang inside.

The historical and naval aspects are there too – the North Star, or pole star, was once used by sailors to help with navigation, and the star also forms part of Portsmouth city’s crest.

The Star routes 7 & 8 combine to run every 10 mins between Waterlooville and the city centre.
