Door-to-door bus service expands in Mole Valley

Surrey’s first on-demand, shared bus service – Mole Valley Connect – is now available throughout the whole of the district to improve bus provision for residents.

Since the service launched in June 2022 in the north of Mole Valley, over 11,600 trips have been taken.

The four electric mini-buses can be booked on the Surrey connect APP, online at or by telephone on 0300 123 7751, Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm. Buses run Monday to Friday from 7am to 7pm and on Saturdays from 8am to 6pm. Journeys can be booked with 30 minutes notice or up to seven days in advance.

Matt Furniss, Cabinet Member for Transport, Infrastructure and Growth at Surrey County Council said: “Mole Valley Connect has proved very popular with residents in the north of the district so I am delighted that we are now able to offer this convenient, doorstep service to everyone in the area. This will help people who may be isolated due to their rural location or have had to traditionally be heavily car dependent.

“The service is open to everyone and could enable people of all ages to reach GP surgeries, attend hospital appointments, access further education and training or go shopping.

“We’ll also be bringing on-demand bus services to other rural parts of Surrey later this year as part of our £50m investment to improve bus services and encourage more people to take the bus. This includes more zero emission buses, more real time passenger information and a half fare scheme for young people aged 20 and under.”

The Department for Transport approved Surrey’s bid for £660,000 in 2021 to improve bus travel in areas where there are fewer commercial services.
