Changes to bus times in the Medway Towns from 2nd September 2018

Start Date: 02/09/2018


Location: Chatham, Gillingham, Rainham, Rochester, Strood

We will be making some changes to our timetables in the Medway Towns from 2nd September.

We will be making changes to the times of some of our buses in the Medway Towns from 2nd September.

There will be minor changes to some to improve reliability but the main change will be a more frequent Sunday service for the Sapphire 101 service between Gillingham, Chatham and Maidstone, with buses running every twenty minutes instead of half-hourly as at present.

These Sunday buses will also run beyond Gillingham to and from Twydall, replacing Service 182 over that section of route.

There are no changes to the times or route of the 101 or 182 on Mondays to Saturdays.

The other main change is that Service 155 will be extended at Wouldham to serve the new Peters Village development.
