Sevenoaks taxi-bus

In summer 2019 we are launching 5 public transport pilot schemes designed to improve accessibility and sustainability of rural public transport in Kent.

The pilots were first introduced to the public as part of our Big Conversation public consultation during July 2018.

Rural transport pilot scheme for Sevenoaks

The Sevenoaks pilot scheme will serve:

  • East Hill
  • Fairseat
  • Otford
  • Stansted
  • West Kingsdown

A new 'taxi-bus' service will be created to connect Sevenoaks with its surrounding rural villages.

The taxi-bus will run to a scheduled timetable and there will be no booking required.

The pilot is currently being developed alongside parish councils and transport operators.

Timetables, routes and fares will be confirmed closer to the launch of the scheme in 2019.
