Medway Valley Links is a partnership of Local Authorities, Nu-Venture, Southeastern and the Kent Community Rail Partnership to promote public transport in the Medway Valley. The partnership is highlighting the linkages between Medway Valley Line rail services and Route 151 services between Chatham and Kings Hill. If you are travelling between Strood and Snodland and have a single, return or season rail ticket for the journey, you can also use the ticket to travel on the 151 bus. A combined timetable booklet showing Medway Valley train times and the schedule for route 151 has been produced and the latest version can be downloaded by clicking here.
