Buses from Iwade into Sittingbourne or to the Isle of Sheppey tend to run once an hour. Check out the online timetables on the Arriva website (see right) or pop along to one of the many bus stops in Iwade to look at the timetable.


The nearest mainline train station is Sittingbourne but we are not far from Swale and Kemsley stations which enable you to get the train to Sittingbourne.


Iwade is conveniently located just off the A249 which leads to both the M2 (5 minutes with a fair wind) and the M20 (15-20 minutes).

On-demand transport

ArrivaClick is an on-demand minibus service that takes multiple passengers heading in the same direction and books them into a shared vehicle.

How does it work?

ArrivaClick comes when you want it, where you want it, meaning you don't have to walk to the bus stop, or travel based on fixed timetables and schedules.

Using the ArrivaClick app for iPhone or Android, you select your pick-up and drop-off point, and ArrivaClick does the rest. You will be picked up at a nearby corner and dropped off at a corner close to your desired destination. This helps ensure that journey times are comparable to those of a taxi.

Once your journey is booked, you are guaranteed a seat and payments are cashless - processed automatically in-app - meaning you don't have to worry about carrying change.

How much does it cost?

Journeys start at just £1 and this summer, if you book a journey with friends or family (up to three people), they go for half the price!*

When does it operate?

ArrivaClick currently operates within Sittingbourne and surrounding areas at the following times:
Monday to Saturday: 6am to 7:30pm

Operated by The Kings Ferry Limited, Travel Link offers London commuters the opportunity to travel in comfort and safety in a well appointed coach complete with seat belts, air-con, reclining seats, tinted windows, curtains and reading lights fitted as standard.

To enhance your comfort on-board we guarantee every passenger a seat so that you can relax during your journey as your friendly qualified driver uses designated bus lanes to guide you to your London destination. Feel free to read, study or catch up on some sleep - the choice is yours.

Operating every working weekday, Travel Link offers convenient pick up points from numerous locations on the Isle of Sheppey, Iwade and Sittingbourne. And once you have finished after a hard day you will be collected from a comprehensive choice of London locations and taken back home.

Saving you money

If you currently travel to London by train, Travel Link offers you the potential to make huge comparative savings on an annual season ticket and travel card with passengers from Sheppey & Iwade typically saving in excess of £1600 per annum.

And for those who currently use their own vehicle, the commute into London is becoming increasingly stressful and expensive. With increased traffic delays and seemingly constant price increases to fuel, congestion charges and parking, why not leave the car at home and let Travel Link save you money and reduce your stress levels?

Ticket sales

All tickets, with the exception of Annual Season Tickets, can be purchased on the coach from one of our Ticket Collectors and each valid ticket will allow you to travel on any of The Travel Link's commuters services. Ticket collectors can accept payment in cash or by cheque (if accompanied by a cheque guarantee card offering cover greater than the value of tickets purchased)

All tickets, including Annual Season tickets, can be purchased from our premises or by calling 01634 265 503, payment accepted by cash (in person), cheque or credit-card/debit-card.

Opening hours are:
Monday to Friday 9.00 - 17.30 and Saturday 09.00 - 12.30
