Local travel options

There are alternatives to personal car.

Walking & cycling being the easy option for those in good health and without a motive disability.

North Guildford is served by a good bus service, however its time-table reliability is subject to the traffic. During busy periods this can be delayed. Some residents consider the ticket fee quite high in comparison to the alternatives.

Car Share has been around for some time. Many companies encourage employees to car share to and from work. There are also a number of online sites where you can put in your location and destination to find out who is offering care share in your locality.

You can also sign up to offer your own car share route and if someone else selects your ride, you can reduce your own travel costs!
