Bus improvements in Surrey

We're making improvements to Surrey's bus network

Getting the bus in Guildford, Woking, Redhill and Reigate has never been easier.

The Travel SMART team has made a series of improvements to the towns' busiest bus stops. The project - paid for entirely by a successful bid to the Department for Transport's Local Sustainable Transport Fund - has seen a wealth of improvements made to the stops, all designed to help bus services be more punctual and reliable by reducing delays. The improvements are aimed at encouraging more local people to use buses and leave their cars at home, which will boost the local economy by easing traffic pressure on Surrey's roads.  

  • Raised kerbs - the kerbs near the bus stop have been raised so that passengers can have step-free access onto/off a low-floor bus. This will benefit passengers with mobility problems plus those who may have child buggies, or shopping trolleys.
  • Bus stop layouts - the layout of the bus stop waiting area has been improved so that the bus stop pole is not in the way of passengers getting on/off buses.
  • Waiting area improvements - the pavement at or around waiting areas has been resurfaced so as to eliminate trip hazards of broken paving/tarmac
  • Bus cage markings -  To prevent parking at bus stops, "no parking" road markings around the stops have been put down or refreshed, with enforceable "clearway" plates also attached to bus stop poles. This enables buses to get good access to the stops,whilst also ensuring they can pull up to the kerb in a straight line so that the new raised kerbs can be used by passengers.
  • Upgrades to Surrey's Real Time Passenger Information (RTPI) system- RTPI provides live information about the arrival of services either through electronic displays at stops or via smartphones.
  • New RTPI displays have recently been installed at locations in Woking, Guildford and Redhill. This includes the bus stations, park and ride sites and other suitable town centre locations.
  • We're also identifying bus stops further along the bus corridors that have recently been upgraded to install additional RTPI displays within bus shelters and at other key transport and hub locations.
  • Passengers will soon be able to use their smartphones to pick up live bus information by scanning QR codes displayed at the bus stops. This is particularly useful for stops that do not currently have an electronic RTPI display installed.
