Buses4U:

Buses4U is a 'demand responsive' bus service, available throughout the Tandridge District, that has no fixed route and no timetable, but travels to meet passengers who have booked a journey. 

On average Buses4U has over 2,000 passengers a month, who use the service to go shopping; for hospital and doctor's appointments; to get to work, school or college; and for general leisure outings. The buses can take up to 16 passengers and are therefore suitable for both individual and group outings. This service is thus an ideal option for groups who would like to reduce their use of the car, but have no alternative public transport services available to them.

The Buses4U service is available:

   Mondays to Fridays 09:00 to 15:30

(Schooldays) 16:30 to 22:30

Mondays to Fridays 08:00 to 22:30

(Non-Schooldays)

Saturdays 08:00 to 22:30

Sundays & Public Holidays No Service

To book, telephone 01372 204540

Free Bus Passes and Travel:

From 1st April 2006, senior citizens and disabled residents who live in Tandridge will be issued with a free pass by Tandridge District Council, which for the first time will give them free travel on buses.

Renewal forms have already been sent out, so existing holders can replace their passes. If you are applying for a pass for the first time, you will need to provide proof of residency, proof you are aged 60 or over, or if you are a disabled citizen, a letter from Social Services stating your eligibility. People with disabilities are eligible from five years of age.

Those who cannot travel on their own may also be able to get a bus pass which allows a carer to travel at half price.

The pass allows free travel on any bus service that begins or ends in Surrey. Those over 60 can use the pass Mondays to Fridays after 9.00am and at any time during weekends and public holidays. There are no time restrictions for those with disabilities.

A great deal of interest in the free pass is anticipated, so applicants are encouraged to apply early to help Tandridge District Council get the passes to those eligible by 1st April.

For further information please contact Christine Jackson on 01883 732909, email buspasses@tandridge.gov.uk, or write to Tandridge District Council, Station Road East, Oxted, Surrey RH8 0BT.

Forms can also be filled in here on the Tandridge District Council website.

East Surrey Wheels 2 Work Scheme:

The East Surrey Rural Transport Partnership has developed the ‘Wheels 2 Work’ scheme. Wheels 2 Work aims to offer a means of transport to work, training or learning where currently, no private or public transport options exist.

Residents (aged 16+) living within the area covered by Mole Valley District Council, Reigate & Banstead Borough Council or Tandridge District Council, can apply to the scheme to be loaned a 50cc ‘twist and go’ moped, for up to six months. While there is a weekly administration fee of £10.00, half of this will be refunded at the end of the scheme provided the moped is returned in good order and no insurance claims have been made throughout the term of the loan.

To be eligible for the scheme, an applicant must have a firm job or training offer (or a place at a school or college) which they are neither able to get to by using public transport, nor have a viable option using private transport. Each applicant must hold a full or provisional driving licence and have a bank account. The Wheels 2 Work scheme will pay for each successful person to complete a one-day course that leads to attainment of the Certificate of Basic Training (CBT) which is required by law for all motorcycle users. The scheme also provides a safety helmet, jacket, gloves and reflective vest to each successful candidate.

Further information and an application form can be found on the website of East Surrey Rural Transport Partnership at http://www.eastsurreyrtp.org.uk/ or by contacting your local Jobcentre Plus or Connexions office.
