Minor changes to bus times in the Kent Thameside area from 1st September 2019

Start Date: 20/08/2019


Location: Bluewater, Borough Green, Dartford, Gravesend, Meopham, Northfleet and Sevenoaks

We will be making some minor changes to bus times to improve reliability.

In order to improve reliability and give better connections on some services, we will be making minor adjustments to the times of some buses serving the Dartford, Gravesend and Borough Green areas.

Some will run earlier but most of the changes will only involve minor changes to match the scheduled time more closely to the time actually taken to give improved punctuality.

At Swanscombe, Service 484 will be extended to serve a larger part of the area.

Here are the changes in detail:

190: Chatham – Rochester – Strood – Higham – Chalk – Gravesend

The following buses will be adjusted as shown:

- The 1550 hours bus from Gravesend on Schooldays will run five minutes earlier
- The 1603 hours bus from Gravesend on Mondays to Fridays (Non Schooldays) will depart at 1605 and will no longer run via Dering Way at Chalk. There are no changes to the existing times of this bus between Chalk and Chatham.
- The 1615 hours bus from Gravesend on Saturdays will depart at 1617 and will no longer run via Dering Way at Chalk. There are no changes to the existing times of this bus between Chalk and Chatham.
