Sittingbourne Market Relocation

8/5/2017

As you may have seen in the local press Swale Borough Council were due to close Sittingbourne High Street every Friday from 26th May 2017 in order to relocate the market to the High Street.

In order to make public transport easier to understand both Chalkwell and Arriva were accordingly due to move all bus services out of the High Street on every day of the week. While this would have inconvenienced some it was preferable to having different timetables for different days of the week.

We were due to release new timetables effective from Friday 26th May to coincide with the High Street closure, also introducing some minor timetable changes on the same date. However, Swale Borough Council have now reversed their decision and have postponed the market relocation and High Street closure, giving bus operators a very short window to make adjustments.

All services that currently serve the High Street will continue to do so. Due to the short notice given by Swale Borough Council all of our timetables have had to go back to the printers, and we will not have new timetables available for a few days. 

Online timetables are now available here.

Services affected are 326/327, 343/344/345, 8, 9, 339 and 324.

We apologise for not having timetables available in a timely fashion, although due to the late change of policy by Swale Borough Council this was beyond our control.
