Changes to bus services

Since 28 August 2022, some bus services have changed operators and some amendments have been made to times due to new contracts being awarded. 

Further information can be found on:

Other services are unchanged.

Older persons and disabled persons bus passes will continue to be accepted at the same times on these services. The Medway Youth Pass will continue to be accepted on all services.
