Guildford "Glide" park and ride

Service update May 2022

  • Services 100 Spectrum and 400 Onslow are suspended and will not operate until further notice.
  • Services 200 Artington and 300 Merrow operate to the timetables shown below.

The impact of the pandemic and changing work and shopping patterns has impacted the numbers of people travelling to and from Guildford every day. Usage of the Park and Ride services is increasing however passenger numbers are currently less than half the pre-pandemic levels. Surrey County Council, Guildford Borough Council and Stagecoach will monitor demand and amend the schedules as and when passenger demand increases.

Guildford "Glide" park and ride is the smart way to get into Guildford. Park and ride lets you park free of charge at one of four car parks - Spectrum, Artington, Merrow, and Onslow - and pay to travel into Guildford on the all-electric zero emission buses. Pay the driver when you get on the bus, either with cash or the buses accept contactless payments. Park and ride buses drop you off and collect you by the Friary, a handy location for both major shops and offices.
