Tenterden 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 Tenterden

The Tenterden pilot scheme will serve:

  • Appledore
  • Benenden
  • Castletons Oak
  • Iden Green
  • Leigh Green
  • Rare Breeds Centre
  • Rolvenden
  • Rolvenden Layne
  • Shirkoak Park
  • Shrubcote

A new 'taxi-bus' service will be created to connect Tenterden with its outlying 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.
