An article on the changes to the Abelio Bus Service through Ripley failed to make it into this issue. Briefly the Abelio 515 service from Guildford to Kingston is to be replaced with the 715 run by Stagecoach, with a slightly amended route. This change is effective from 1st January 2017. To see details of the changes to Abelio Services see Surrey County Council’s page or a PDF copy of it.
