BUS and TRAIN SERVICES. Click here for our revised Bus and Train Timetable Summary from 21st May 2017. A few train times have changed by a minute or two. Also shows the recent changes to some times on route 270, and the service on this route on Sundays and Public Holidays.
22nd May-3rd July: Bus diversions – During the road closure buses in both directions will be unable to serve the Three Crowns bus stops. Passengers can use the stops at the War Memorial, or the temporary stops on the Lewes Road at the lay-bys outside/opposite the Three Crowns.
Ashurst Wood is served by three bus routes. The 270 (East Grinstead – Haywards Heath and Brighton) and 291 (Tunbridge Wells – Crawley) are operated by Metrobus (www.metrobus.co.uk). The 261 (Uckfield – East Grinstead) is operated by Seaford & District (www.seafordanddistrict.co.uk). Train services from East Grinstead are operated by Southern (www.southernrailway.com).
The Village Council’s summary timetable shows all bus services between Forest Row, Ashurst Wood and East Grinstead (town and station), together with train connections between East Grinstead and East Croydon, Clapham Junction and London stations. We aim to update this whenever there is a timetable change, and should welcome comments and suggestions on how we could improve this information. The Village Council can accept no liability for inaccuracies; users should confirm details including fares information with operators.
Real-time information displays are not provided at bus stops in the village, but this information is available for Metrobus services from their website or (for mobile users) from www.mytraveline.mobi.
A “Plusbus” scheme operates in the East Grinstead area including Ashurst Wood. This enables rail travellers to add local bus services to their train ticket for a reduced amount compared with buying separate bus and train tickets. “Plusbus” tickets are available for one day or for various lengths of season ticket, and have to be purchased from a railway station. For rail season ticket holders there are potential savings over parking charges. Full details can be found on the Southern and Metrobus websites, or on www.plusbus.info/grinstead.
Please contact the Council Clerk if you would like to comment on or receive information about bus services in the area.
