The City Red brand started in Southampton with 'the three' service spanning the two '-hills' across the city - Lordshill and Thornhill - in December 2010.
Since then, the fleet has continued to grow with the launch of the City Red routes 2, 11 and 7 followed by the new 10 from September 2015.
The City Reds are Southampton’s most modern and efficient bus fleet. All the buses are fitted with either Euro 5 or 6 engines, which make them among the most environmentally friendly vehicles currently on the road. This makes them ideal to run on at least a 10 minute frequency throughout the day in and around the city centre because they have a positive impact on air quality.
