West Malling 58 feeder service

The West Malling 58 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 West Malling transport consultation during February 2019.

Difference from the existing 58 service

The 58 feeder service serves the same villages as the existing 58 service, but terminates at Maidstone Hospital rather than continue to Maidstone town centre.

You can travel to Maidstone town centre by changing to another bus at the South Aylesford Retail Park interchange. The interchange offers shelter and real-time information boards which display connecting services: You only need to buy 1 ticket for a complete journey to Maidstone town centre.

The pilot is running for 12 months from Monday 15 July. If the pilot is unsuccessful the existing 58 service will be reinstated.

The 558 school service is unaffected by the pilot.

Fares

Fares are the same as those charged on the current 58 service.

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

Timetables

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.

Our timetables do not feature all bus stops; view the complete timetable on Traveline.
