King George Hospital staff will be set to benefit from improved bus links.

A new timetable has been introduced in both directions of the 362 bus route, which operates between the hospital and Grange Hill Station.

Buses now run at revised times between 3pm and 10pm from Mondays to Fridays, 9am to 10pm on Saturdays and 9.30am to 9pm on Sundays.

It is hoped that the new times will coincide better with staffs’ start and end shift times.

The same frequency of buses is still running each day and all other services on the route outside these times remain unchanged.

Geoff Hobbs, TfL’s director of public transport planning, said “it’s crucial” to help NHS staff get form “A to B effectively”.
