New Sevenoaks service
Go-Coach Hire is to launch a new service in Sevenoaks, Kent on 2 November. The service is being delivered in partnership with Sevenoaks Town Council and benefits from funding from Section 106 money, covering it for approximately three years. The new 8 route circles the town centre in a figure of eight. It is hoped that during the first three years of operation the No 8 bus will be used sufficiently to make it financially viable for future years. The proposed fare for the bus is £2 single journey and £4 day ticket.
Go Coach Director, Matthew Arnold, said, ‘Following on from the success of the seasonal vintage bus route 7 which the local community have wholeheartedly embraced, we’re delighted to continue to work with our partners to deliver improvements to bus services in Sevenoaks. The new service 8 will provide links to a number of areas currently without a bus service and therefore improves accessibility for all.’
