‘Promising start’ for Chalkwell service
Chalkwell of Sittingbourne claims its new commuter service between Kings Hill, Leybourne, West Malling and London has ‘got off to a promising start’. The operator now runs a total of 13 regular commuter services a day to the capital. Passenger numbers during the first week of the new journey were ‘very encouraging’, with customers giving positive feedback. The company is offering commuters from Kings Hill as well as Sittingbourne, Medway and Maidstone a ‘try before you buy’ offer for two free day return tickets during the month of July. The development of a new service was brought forward following a recent announcement regarding expected parking restrictions affecting a council owned car park on the A20, which is used by some of its regular customers.
