Local operator Abellio are giving up many of their Surrey routes on 30 December, and their 515 is being largely replaced by Stagecoach South route 715 from 31 December, running from Guildford to Kingston via Portsmouth Road all the way, plus a loop through Cobham.

By agreement with our friends at Stagecoach, we are supporting the new service with a duplicate operation by RMC1461, on the timetable below.

Photographers please note that, as we can’t follow the new route all the way because of the low bridge at Ditton Marsh, we will run non-stop between Surbiton and Scilly Isles via Hook Ace of Spades.
