The new service will operate under the Stagecoach Express brand between Canterbury and North Greenwich. North Greenwich offers excellent connections to the capital and is also the location of The O2 arena.

Vehicles expected to be used on the service are five Plaxton Elite-bodied Volvo B9Rs transferred from Stagecoach Midland’s Northampton depot. These vehicles had been previously operating the W7 Bedford-Wellingborough

East Midlands Trains service since May 2018, when changes were made to the London train timetable to accommodate the new Thameslink timetable.

Stagecoach South East will announce further details in due course.
