Changes to bus services during the Coronavirus pandemic

Many bus services in Surrey are running at a reduced level and in some cases have been suspended.

The 'normal' timetables shown on our main area timetable pages on this website should be disregarded for routes listed below, in favour of those shown on this page. For safety reasons, our mobile inspectors are currently unable to post new timetables for the temporary changes at bus stops.

Whilst known information and revised timetables will be published on this page, if in doubt it is suggested that you visit the operator website or social media before travelling. There may be further changes at short notice, so also check this page regularly. Bus timetable information is also available from Traveline - www.traveline.info/se or call them on 0871 200 2233, 0700-2200 (calls cost 12p per minute plus your phone company's access charge)

What is happening to bus services?

Surrey bus operators are following the latest guidance issued by the government. Before travelling please take a moment to read the latest government advice for passengers: Coronavirus (COVID-19): safer travel guidance for passengers

Poster: Social distancing on buses (PDF)

The reduced services align with government travel advice that you should not use public transport except for essential journeys. A very significant reduction in passenger journeys and fare income for bus operators mean that an appropriate balance has been necessary between safeguarding services that are important for key worker travel or essential shopping, the availability of drivers and what is sustainable for bus companies, to ensure they survive on much-reduced income so as to be ready for when life returns to normal.

Bus operators are receiving substantial financial support from Surrey County Council and from central government, until June 2020, to help them through this difficult time. Beyond that date is subject to review as circumstances may change. To protect the public and bus company staff, extra strict cleaning regimes and driver-shielding measures have been adopted with social-distancing on-board being encouraged. Some operators are no longer giving change and all are encouraging payment by contactless card where this is an option.

Bus service levels may be reviewed as and when government travel advice alters. A change to the current 'lock-down' guidance may not necessarily mean that travel restrictions will all be lifted or service levels increased.

Concessionary travel

To assist the elderly and disabled who may be travelling by bus to go to supermarkets which are offering special early morning shopping facilities, the bus operators in Surrey are allowing free travel for holders of concessionary passes before 9.30am.
