Maidstone feeder service

The Maidstone feeder service is 1 of 5 public transport pilot schemes designed to improve the accessibility and sustainability of rural public transport in Kent.

The service was first introduced to the public as part of our Big Conversation public consultation and refined during our Maidstone transport consultation during February 2019.

The service consists of 2 different routes:

  • 13F which replaces the existing 13 route
  • 59F which replaces the existing 59 route.

Difference from existing services

Both the 13F and 59F serve the same villages as the existing 13 and 59 services, but terminate at Sutton Road, opposite Morrisons, rather than continue to Maidstone town centre.

You can travel to Maidstone town centre by changing to another bus at Sutton Road, Sutton Woods. You only need to buy 1 ticket for a complete journey to Maidstone town centre, regardless of operator.

The bus stop directly outside Morrisons will no longer be served, because the feeder buses need to turn around to access Nottingham Avenue.

The existing 13 and 59 school services are unaffected by the pilot.

Fares

Fares are the same as those charged on the current 13 and 59 services.

All of our bus passes are accepted, subject to their individual terms and conditions.

Timetables

13F

The service runs Monday to Saturday, excluding bank holidays, and is operated in partnership with Nu-Venture. Contact Nu-Venture for service information on 01622 88 22 88.
