Changes to bus services - update from Surrey County Council

‚ÄčInformation for students and parents - changes to Abellio bus services 81, 441, 446, 458, 461, 513, 514, 515, 555, 556, 557, 564 and 663 and Arriva services 436 & 437

Due to the resignation from 31 December by Abellio from contracts they hold on behalf of Surrey County Council to operate certain bus services, the Council has needed to put in place alternative arrangements. These involve in some cases different bus companies, routes, frequencies and timetables. If students use one of the bus services to school or college, listed above, they should check carefully the information published at www.surreycc.gov.uk/buses. In the "Forthcoming Changes" section of the website, there is a summary of the changes and links to the new timetables that will be in operation at the start of the Spring Term.

Surrey County Council Education Season Tickets and Bus Student Fare Cards will continue to be valid but Season Tickets or Termly Passes should not be purchased from Abellio for services they will no longer run from January. Information on Season Tickets may be obtainable from the appropriate bus operator.
