Bus Services serving Cliffsend Village


Page updated 12 Mar 2019

Note: There are plans to withdraw No. 42 service through the village.  Please click here for information on the proposal and click here for the Parish Council response to the plan.

Note: The No. 9 Canterbury Service is still serving the village on the Canterbury West Road during the road closure due to the collapsed sewer.

In each direction it is accessing the village via the northern Lord of the Manor roundabout, then turning round on the Jentex apron.

It uses the underpass to access the Hengist Way & Minster.

The Ramsgate – Sandwich bus was changed in Sept. 2017.  This route is now provided by the new 43 service.

(The 87 / 88 no longer serves Thanet / Cliffsend, but terminates at Sandwich.)


All buses serving Cliffsend are now run by Stagecoach, except for one School Bus – the 954 – which is now supplied by Regent Coaches.


Please note that the timetables here were current on
