In 1997, the First logo became more prominent. Later repaints featured the First logo and region name in corporate colours. In 1999, First Provincial merged with First Southampton to create First Hampshire. In 2003, First Hampshire merged with part of Southern National which created the present First Hampshire & Dorset. It was around this time region names stopped featuring on buses, thus marking the end of the Provincial name.
