An agreement has been reached regarding coach drops and parking in Chatham after concerns were raised that Chatham Waterfront bus station only allows local buses to use the facility.

Tourist coaches visiting Chatham town centre and the theatres can now drop off and pick up passengers at stand D19 in Waterfront way. Coaches are permitted to wait 15 minutes, although pre-booking is necessary, at least 48 hours in advance. The post code for Sat Navs for the bus station is ME4 4SL. No parking is allowed but coaches can park at the Acorn Wharf coach park in Rochester.
