The Sherwood Shuttle

The Sherwood Shuttle

Service 277 - the Sherwood shuttle - shuttles between Sherwood and the town centre via Ferndale every 15 minutes for the main part of the day on Mondays to Saturdays, as shown on the timetable.

Two buses an hour extend to Knights Park and the Tunbridge Wells Hospital, serving the Odeon cinema and passing Great Lodge Retail Park on the way. The 277 also runs every two hours on Sundays, under contract to Kent County Council, from Sainsbury's through to Sherwood and then to and from North Farm, Knights Park, Tunbridge Wells Hospital and Tonbridge.

In Tunbridge Wells town centre, buses stop in Monson Road and at the Rail Station, with alternate buses on Mondays to Saturdays continuing to and from the Pantiles and Sainsbury’s, giving handy access to all the main shopping areas and the historic part of town. At Sherwood, buses run via Friars Way, Birken Road, Liptraps Lane and then Greggs Wood Road, Sherwood Road, Sandhurst Road, Ferndale, St. James’ Church, Lansdowne Road and Calverley Road into the town centre.

The three buses are named after people from Sherwood who have, over many years, made a positive contribution to the life of their local community.

These are Jenny Bays who has given much time for well over 30 years to carry out voluntary work, Keith Marden who was Head Teacher of the local primary school for over 20 years and the Reverend Brian Senior who was the vicar of St. Philip's Church for over 10 years. Their names are carried on the buses as a tribute to their work.
