Where do the buses go?
We have a range of maps at our disposal: a county-wide one, which includes the breakway Borough of Medway, not official covered by Kent County Council. Each major town and city has its own detailed map, including enlargements of the town and city centres. 5 out of 5.
No timetables on the council's website, but you can easily find out the operator you need to go to for details about each route. There is also a clear link to Traveline on which you can find timetables for all routes in Kent and beyond. 4 out of 5.
Plusbus is mentioned, but other than that: nothing. No multi-operator ticket exists according to the council. You have to go to Stagecoach's website to find out about the Explorer ticket which is accepted by many operators - but the council doesn't tell you that. Arriva also offers the Explorer ticket, but their leaflet is out of date. No information from the council on how to find out about single and return fares is offered although contact details for all bus operators in Kent is provided. 1 out of 5.
Rail destinations in Kent for which Plusbus tickets are available.
So we have excellent maps, timetables over on Traveline with a clear link, but totally inadequate ticketing information. Kent County Council scores a total of 10 out of 15.
