Southdown Buses are the leading independent bus operator in the area; operating services across East Surrey and into Kent and Sussex; mainly centred on the towns of Oxted, Caterham, Redhill, Crawley, and East Grinstead. Many of the services we operate are financially supported by the local councils. Railway replacement services are also operated as required to cover emergencies and planned engineering work.
Timetables, Fares, Maps, and Real Time Information are available on the route information page. Up to date information running information on temporary route changes and diversions can be found on our service updates page. We also have a dedicated tickets page for further information on how to save money using our services. The attractions page is perfect for identifying days out by bus to places you may never have heard of.
We are frequently investing in newer vehicles for our services, and boast one of the youngest fleets in the UK for an independent operator. Our buses are washed and cleaned every night, and thoroughly checked every morning before going into service. All of our vehicles are wheelchair friendly (see How To Use Our Buses), and are equipped with the very latest technology such as CCTV and Real Time Tracking. All of these features enable us to offer a safe, reliable, friendly, comfortable, and efficient service to all our customers.
Occasionally, circumstances outside our control may delay our buses. If our service has not met your expectations, please let us know, so that we can try to put things right for the future. We welcome feedback and always investigate complaints and suggestions. Also, do let us know if one of our staff has acted beyond the call of duty and we will gladly pass on your compliments.
Phone calls are welcome, but where matters need to be investigated with a member of staff, it is extremely helpful to have details in writing; see our contact us page.
