From Sunday 3 June there’ll be changes to many bus routes and timetables in the Folkestone area. There’ll also be changes to some routes that serve the town from outlying areas.
There hasn’t been a full review of services in and around Folkestone for many years. Whilst there’s been growth in bus use on some routes, others carry fewer passengers at certain times.
Traffic congestion continues to have an impact on our services too. We recognise that you want your bus to run at the advertised time, so we need to make sure our timetables are achievable.
This means that adjustments to the network are required so that we can continue to offer a sustainable bus service for the long term.
The vast majority of places currently served by our buses will continue to be, however there will be some changes to route numbers and the frequency of buses on some routes.
This service will be separated into two dedicated sections. Route 102 will provide the service between Dover, Folkestone, Hythe, New Romney and Greatstone with buses every 20 minutes. From Greatstone one bus every hour will continue to Lydd-on-Sea, Lydd, Camber and finish at Rye.
