Better bus services for Tunbridge Wells

Bus passengers in Tunbridge Wells are going to enjoy on-board wi-fi, better bus stops and new vehicles thanks to an agreement between Kent County Council, Tunbridge Wells Borough Council and Arriva.

The 281 service is the first route to trail the new wi-fi service.

Greg commented:

"Better bus services has been one of my major ongoing campaigns. Two early successes were the No 281 loop linking High Brooms, Tunbridge Wells town centre and Rusthall, and the Sherwood Shuttle – both introducing regular, frequent, accessible and modern buses. It's great that the Borough and County Councils are working together with Arriva to improve bus services even more. Wi-fi is a very welcome innovation - I would like Southeastern to follow suit with the trains."
