If you have an appointment at the Cobham Health Centre or at the Cobham Community Hospital on the same site, there are two ways that Chatterbus can get you there.
The first is to take the Chatterbus to the 'Lockhart Road/Tartar Road' stop. The short pathway through to the Health Centre and Hospital is on the corner where Tartar Road meets Canada Road. Ramps are offered as an alternative to the steps.
The second is to take Chatterbus to the 'Cobham Centre for the Community' stop in Oakdene Road where you can meet the Cobham Health Centre Shuttle Bus Service. This is now operated directly by Elmbridge Borough Council, and goes back and forth to the Health Centre every 10 minutes between the following hours, three days a week:
The shuttle service to the Health Centre is free and you do not need to book.

We are pleased to announce that the Chelsea Foundation will support the Chatterbus for a further three years as the club continues to play an active role in the local community. The Chelsea Foundation began supporting the Chatterbus when it launched in April 2015 together with the other major founding supporters, Elmbridge Borough Council and Surrey County Council.
"Chatterbus is having a tremendously positive effect locally," said Andrew Burley, Elmbridge councillor and Chatterbus board member, following his visit to the training ground. "Our ability to help people get out of their homes to shop, to work, to go to appointments, to see their friends and to enjoy our great borough, is down to organisations like the Chelsea Foundation seeing the huge value in what Chatterbus does for the community."
Cobham Community Bus CIC chairman Sir Gerald Acher said:
"We would like to thank the Chelsea Foundation for having faith in us when we launched our local bus service two years ago, and we are thrilled that they will be behind us for a further three years.
Their continued support means a great deal to us, and if it had not been for that initial support the bus would simply not be running today."

Today Chatterbus has been on the road for two years. It has been a remarkable ride so far, with the 18,000 passenger journeys made this year exceeding last year by 25% and our revenues increasing by 30%. We are all delighted to have finished the year on such a positive note.
This success means that we have been able to make some exciting plans for the coming year, and we shall shortly be able to announce improvements to the timetable - especially to the Saturday service - crucial sponsorship and even a new bus. All of these will, we hope, make 2017/18 an even better year for Chatterbus.
Meanwhile we would like to say a big thank you to all our sponsors, supporters, drivers and passengers for making Chatterbus a permanent fixture in the Cobham community, not to mention the friendliest bus in the area. Happy birthday all!
