Chatterbus is One Year Old!
On Thursday 7th April 2016 Chatterbus will be celebrating its first birthday.
We are all amazed at how quickly the time has gone, and at how successful the bus has been in its first 12 months. Thank you to all of our sponsors – Surrey County Council, Elmbridge Borough Council, Chelsea Football Foundation, Cargill and Anchor – who made the first year of operation possible, and to all our passengers who have made the staggering fourteen thousand journeys on Chatterbus.
There will be balloons and sweets for all on Chatterbus on Thursday, so make sure you join us on board. We would especially love to see children on school holidays - tell your mum or dad to organise a good old-fashioned day out on the bus.
See you on Thursday!
New Chatterbus Timetable starts Mon 4th April 2016
Download the new Chatterbus Timetable hereChatterbus aims to provide a reliable, friendly service that’s there when it’s needed.
For our second year of operations we have improved the C2 Saturday timetable for shoppers in Weybridge and Leatherhead, and our C1 weekday timetable continues to provide regular services connecting Cobham centre with the station, the Sainsbury’s Superstore, Brooklands Retail Park and Weybridge.
Here is a summary of the changes:
C1 (Monday to Friday)
A slightly earlier start at 0700 instead of 0702 from Sainsbury's will make sure commuters will get the 0727 (0724 in winter) train. The school service in the morning will depart six minutes earlier from Blundell Lane (at 0814) and from the station at 0822 to further ensure that school children get to school in plenty of time despite variable traffic conditions. As a result morning services until the 1118 from Cobham Station are subject to revised times. The 0940 from the High Street to the station will no longer run as there is a 408 bus just a few minutes earlier.
The afternoon service from Weybridge Ship Hotel will leave two minutes earlier at 1203 so that afternoon services will also change by a few minutes. The late afternoon service to Brooklands will no longer run, due to low demand and traffic congestion at that time.
There will be more stops at Oakdene Road on the way to Lockhart Road for Day Centre users.
For Downside residents, there will be a new late afternoon drop-off at 1725, if requested.
This will run a more helpful service for people wanting to visit Weybridge and Leatherhead/Fetcham, by reducing the long waits at those destinations.
