The 326/327 route provides a very important link between Sittingbourne and Chatham, also serving the villages of Newington, Lower Halstow and Upchurch. From the 8th April 2019 there will be a number of service improvements that should benefit current and potential users:
Improved connections with the Arriva services from Sheppey and Iwade, meaning that customers have a greater choice of journeys from the Island to the Medway Towns.
The 326 journey that starts in Sheerness will commence from Sittingbourne, although will connect with the Arriva 334 service.
Improved 327 and 328 journeys for pupils attending Sittingbourne Schools.
Improved journey times for pupils attending school in Medway, such as Rainham Mark, Howard and Chatham Girls Grammar.
More consistent and memorable departure times from Sittingbourne and Chatham.
Managing Director Roland Eglinton commented “We have taken a long time to plan these changes, and we think they will benefit a lot of people. We also plan to make some vehicle investment in the coming months, updating what is currently used on these services”.
