This summer will see fans able to make use of free buses to and from The Ageas Bowl for 2022’s Vitality Blast and with just two weeks to go until the start of the competition, fans can now book their spot on these free buses.

The free buses will be running from both Hedge End and Southampton Airport Parkway train stations at all seven of Hampshire Hawks T20 matches this summer.

These free direct buses will run continuously from 4:30pm for weekday fixtures and 12pm for weekend fixtures.

The buses will depart from immediately outside both stations - simply head for the Hampshire Hawks flags upon arrival at the stations!

The buses heading back to the stations from The Ageas Bowl will depart from opposite the West Gate turnstiles and the last bus back to the stations will leave 30 minutes after the end of the match.

You won't need a ticket or any accreditation to use the free buses - simply turn up at the stations and get on board - however, if you are planning to use the buses we would ask you to complete the short registration form (available below) to ensure we're able to provide enough vehicles for all fans using the services.
