Arriva in Kent and Surrey

From Monday 1st July the Maidstone Park and Ride services are getting a makeover:

  • Maidstone Borough Council coat of armsEye-catching green buses, new to the Park and Ride service, with dinosaur skin pattern based on the iguanodon on the Maidstone Borough coat of arms
  • No more 501 and 503 route numbers - just look out for 'P&R' and the special green buses
  • Free WiFi and USB charging points on board
  • New timetables
  • New prices
  • New payment methods - simply pay the bus driver with cash or contactless - or buy tickets online or on your phone

Reasons to be cheerful

  • The London Road and Willington Street Park and Ride sites are really convenient if you're arriving in Maidstone from the M2 or M20
  • The cost of 'parking and riding' is great value compared with town centre parking charges
  • Our bus stops at Maidstone West rail station and across the town centre give great, hassle-free access to where you need to be
  • Ideal for commuters working in Maidstone town centre or hopping on a train
  • Reduced off peak prices for shoppers, concessionary pass holders and leisure visitors
  • Free for holders of a valid Maidstone Zone or Kent and Medway Zone Saver ticket
