A new weekend bus service for clubbers and pub goers is to be piloted in a city, just a week after new late-night drinking laws came into force.
The Nightrunner bus will operate in Portsmouth on Friday and Saturdays from this weekend, and aims to get revellers home "safely and cheaply".
It will take people from the city centre to North End, Cosham, Paulsgrove, Havant and Leigh Park.
A registered security guard will be onboard and a fee will be charged.
Local pubs in both Guildhall Walk and South Parade have provided the security staff for the service, which has been organised by the Safer Portsmouth Partnership and the Evening and Late Night Economy Partnership, working with Stagecoach.
Revellers will have to pay £2.50 to get home within the city and £5 outside.
Chief Supt John Campbell said: "We have been working closely with Portsmouth City Council and local publicans to find a way to lower incidence of late night disorder in the city.
"The night bus will hopefully further contribute to creating a safer environment as it will help disperse people more quickly, prevent bottlenecks at taxi ranks and encourage people to leave their cars at home."
