Chatterbus Fares

From Monday 12th August 2019 the Chatterbus has introduced “Zones” to better reflect the distance traveled and will be charging more for journeys that cross more than one zone. Fares will remain the same when the journey begins and ends within a zone and doesn’t cross more than one zone.

£2.00 each journey within a zone
 £3.00 each journey across more than one zone
Children
£1.00 each journey within a zone

Two children of below 5 years of age can be carried without charge if they accompany an adult paying full fare.

Our Local Sponsors

Chatterbus could not run without the help of our three major sponsors – Elmbridge Borough Council, Surrey County Council and Chelsea Foundation.

Specsavers and Levanter Developments have recently become sponsors and we thank them for their support.

We are also grateful to the local businesses and churches whose donations have helped us to get this important service off the ground.
