Stagecoach to launch new route

Stagecoach in Hants & Surrey is to launch a new route, the 715, on Saturday 31st December, which is to run, seven days a week, between Guildford (Surrey) and Kingston (Greater London). It will replace the 515 Abellio Surrey service, which will cease running the day before.

There is yet more good news. The first route 715 to Kingston (Monday – Saturday) will be at 5.21 a.m. (over an hour earlier than the 515) and the last bus back to Guildford will be at 7.25 p.m. (over 1½ hours later than the 515). The 715 will run hourly in between these times.

As regards fares, if you used a Discovery ticket on the 515 service you can still do so on the 715. You will also be able to use Stagecoach South’s (cheaper) Dayrider Gold ticket. Both offer bus travel for one whole day. Singles and returns will, of course, also be available.

That’s it from us for 2017. It’s so nice to be able to end on a positive note.

Have a very merry Christmas and a happy and peaceful new year.
