Buses are bet­ter on route 10

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Family Announcements -

ONE of the routes where pas­sen­gers can ben­e­fit from a £3.6 mil­lion in­vest­ment made by Stage­coach in east Kent is route 10 route be­tween Ash­ford and Folke­stone via Brabourne Lees, Lympne and Hythe.

The hourly Mon­day to Satur­day ser­vice on the 21-mile long route now has an up­graded bus fleet, of­fer­ing easy ac­cess for wheel­chair users and par­ents with baby bug­gies.

Mark Spratt, op­er­a­tions man­ager for Stage­coach in Folke­stone says that the more mod­ern buses of­fer kerb-level board­ing and ramps can also be used by driv­ers to bridge the gap when nec­es­sary.

Once on board, the buses have more floor space to park wheel­chairs and bug­gies.

In­for­ma­tion on the new ser­vices is avail­able by log­ging on to www.stage­coach­bus.com/ east­kent or call­ing 08456 00 22 99.
