Costing commuters less than £10 per day, the service offers unbeatable value and is the cheapest means of commuting to London from Maidstone.
Helen Grant MP said: “I’m really pleased to support the launch of this new coach service which is a real boost to affordable transport in our area and offers increased provision of choice for the thousands of local people for who commute to London daily”.
The Kings Ferry Managing Director Ian Fraser said: “The Kings Ferry has operated tens of millions journeys into the heart of London over decades and we are so pleased to welcome the people of Maidstone on board with our new service. We particularly like that people from all walks of life from bankers to front-line workers are able to take advantage of our coaches because they are affordable and customer feedback from Maidstone so far has been really positive”.
The new coach service, which is a major boost for the region’s connectivity also marks a major milestone for The Kings Ferry, which was founded back in 1968.
The Kings Ferry is committed to investing back into its services and has ploughed £19 million back into its services the past five years alone, has gone from strength to strength in recent years, including the expansion of its award-winning network into Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire.
