The Kings Ferry commuter service ceased operating on 24 December, 2021. Click here to view more information.
This has been an incredibly difficult decision to make and has not been taken lightly. The ongoing challenges created by COVID 19 have reduced demand to such an extent that means our services are not commercially viable and unlikely to become so in the near future.
The Kings Ferry brand was used on commuter services from the Medway Towns to Victoria Coach Station, London.
The Travel Link brand was used for commuter services from the Isle of Sheppey and Sittingbourne. Travel Link was created from a merger of the previous Travel Rite lower-cost brand, and The London Link, a company established by the Kings Ferry in 1999.
From November 2013 until April 2016, Kings Ferry operated services in Bristol and South Gloucestershire under contract to North Somerset Council.
In October 2015, Kings Ferry also commenced operating a service from Maidstone to London which has now also been cancelled.
National Express Transport Solutions gained experience of VIP travel service by providing coach services to such high-profile clients such as Premier League football clubs.
Under the group’s expansion, this has expanded into a separate VIP services division with the highest specification vehicles, from small mini-coaches to 35 seated full-size coaches. The group also expanded into luxury car services and a helicopter hire operation.
