New on-demand bus service starts in Sutton

by Ruth, Marlene, and Steve on 29 May, 2019

Transport for London has just launched a 12 month trial of an on-demand bus service in Sutton.

The service, called GoSutton, is running in collaboration with ViaVan and Go-Ahead London.  

GoSutton will run flexibly in response to local demand, meaning you can be picked up and dropped off within 200 metres of your requested destination. It will take multiple passengers heading in the same direction in a fully accessible shared vehicle. The service operates from ‘corner to corner’, so there are no fixed routes or bus stops. This helps ensure that, even with multiple pick-ups, there are no lengthy detours.

Journeys can be booked by phone or through an app available on the App Store and Google Play.

Services will operate between 06:30 and 21:30 Monday to Sunday except Christmas Day, and the fare will be £3.50 per trip. Oyster and contactless cards are not accepted on the service.

Freedom Pass holders and members of the English National Concessionary Travel Scheme can travel for free.

The trial supports commitments made in the Mayor’s Transport Strategy to help reduce car dependency.

Find out more about how the service works and the area it covers on our Demand responsive bus service webpage.
