Additional Maidstone Service

From January 2016

The introduction of our new Maidstone route has been a tremendous success, and we are delighted to announce the introduction of a second 774 service starting in early January 2016. Many of you have filled out surveys, telling us what times would be best for you and we have devised a timetable that we hope will meet the needs of as many of our customers as possible.

We have added in 5 new stops in London road, Maidstone on both services instead of looping back across the river to service the Kent History & Library Centre.

As mentioned before the launch of the Maidstone route, we will monitor passenger numbers and feedback with a view to increasing the number of services and options for our customers as often as possible, as we understand the importance of choice and flexibility on your daily commute.
