Introducing the Triangle

What's new?

Our Triangle route has been revamped with brand new state-of-the-art double deck buses which are designed to accommodate you in comfort and convenience with...

  • Free wifi
  • USB charging points
  • Air-chill technology
  • Greener, cleaner engines
  • Tinted windows

That's not all... the new buses display special local designs for Whitstable, Herne Bay and Canterbury so look out for all three bespoke designs!  The Whitstable design features a hard-hat diver harvesting oysters which reflects the significance of oyster farming and the diving technique developed in the 19th century. For Herne Bay the record-breaking aviatrix Amy Johnson is depicted in recognition of her pioneering solo flight and continued legacy. Finally for Canterbury the Cathedral features prominently as an iconic landmark for the past 1,400 years.

Where can I travel?

From Sunday 29 May, a new Triangle timetable will be introduced with buses running up to every 15 minutes (during the daytime).

The new Triangle offers a direct and simplified route between the three key centres of Canterbury, Whitstable and Herne Bay.
This means that journey times are shortened and the reliability of the service is improved. 

The Triangle is supplemented by a second route, either Canterbury – Whitstable – Tankerton (route 4) or Canterbury, Herne Bay, Tankerton (route 6) that serve all of the villages and estates along the route, half hourly.

Just pay the driver in cash when you get on. It helps to have the right money, but our drivers can give change.
