Bluestar started life under the Solent Blue Line name, as a subsidiary of Southern Vectis, in 1987. Our current network of bus services in Southampton, Winchester and the Waterside makes Bluestar the main inter-urban bus operator in Southern Hampshire.
We continually invest in our buses and technology. From the latest modern fleet offering Euro 6 engines in our commitment to clean air and offering our customers enhancements like free wifi and USB chargers so they can make the most of their journey time with us. Our buses, with their striking star design, are easy to spot - and they certainly stand out amongst the crowd.
We continue to invest in technology and now all of our buses accept contactless payments offering more convenience to those wishing to travel.
It is a goal to remain the leading friendly operator throughout Southampton.
We also operate Unilink, created in 2001 to transport University staff and students between teaching sites and halls of residence, whilst also providing a service that is open for everyone to use.
In 2017 we celebrated carrying our 40 millionth customer, which is a fantastic milestone. We pride ourselves on our customer service, punctuality and ease of use. All buses are low floor and easy access - and we have spaces available for wheelchair users.
