As of Monday 21st August, Routes 2, 3 and 39 will be diverted via the brand new Asda supermarket off of St George’s Way in Newport.
Route 2 (via Shanklin & Sandown) and route 3 (via Ventnor & Shanklin) will now divert from St George’s Way at the new roundabout to serve the new bus stop adjacent to the store.
Route 39 (Newport) will also serve Asda, diverting from the bottom of Furrlongs via St George’s Way to and from the supermarket. In addition, 39 will no longer serve The Apex bus stop in St Cross, but will operate from Manners View turning left into Daish way and direct to Hunnyhill.
