We are sorry for any inconvenience caused but these services are no longer economically viable to operate. The loss of the Hampshire County Council revenue and the loss of government BSOG funding mean that the services have had to run commercially since July 2016. We have tried our very best as a family firm to continue to serve the local community but unfortunately the operating costs exceed the bus revenue received including the concessionary fares received which are at an all-time low. Once again please accept our apologises. We do hope the Government and Hampshire Council will look at supporting Public Bus Services again as this is a nationwide problem.
If you have any concerns over these services can I suggest you contact your local County Councillors?
The 54, 91, 92, 93 Services will continue to Operate by West Sussex County Council please visit their website.

For over 38 years Emsworth & District Motor Services Ltd have been looking after the travelling needs of the local people of West Sussex and Hampshire.Since 1977 the traditional green and cream, mixed array of buses have trundled up and down the streets of its base in Southbourne. The company has offered coach travel, school buses, local and rural routes through many hard times like recessions, miner’s strikes, petrol strikes and all kinds of weather.Today they are still holding their place firmly in the transport business and with newly acquired Double Decker bus, modern coaches and low floor buses Emsworth & District can offer more options for private, company or corporate coach and bus travel arrangements.
