Bus Service

Claygate is served by the K3 bus, which is operated by Abellio London, under contract to Transport for London (Tfl). The bus runs from Esher through Claygate to Surbiton, Kingston and Roehampton Vale (Asda). It is timetabled at approximately 15-minute intervals throughout the day on Mondays to Saturdays and 20-minute intervals on Sundays, with a 30-minute frequency in the evenings after 8pm on Mondays to Saturdays and 7pm on Sundays.

Bus fares
All buses contracted to Transport for London operate the same fare structure; they no longer accept cash. If you do not have a concessionary pass you will need to produce an Oystercard, Travelcard (valid on all London Bus routes) or contactless bank card. Concessions are only valid if an Oystercard or other relevant permit is shown to the driver for those aged 11 and over. Senior citizen bus passes are valid on all Tfl bus services (including the K3) at all times of day and night, seven days a week.

Different fare arrangements apply on non-Tfl buses running through Surrey (for example, the 515 from Kingston to Guildford). Senior citizen bus passes are only valid on these routes after 9.30am on Mondays to Fridays (all day at weekends). There is no free travel for children on Surrey buses.


Using buses
All bus stops are treated as 'request' stops, so buses should be stopped by raising a hand at stops, pressing a bell (once – and not necessary if someone else has already done so!) on the bus. The K3 often gets very full and, in such instances, standing passengers should move right down inside the bus, including on to the raised section at the back. Drivers do their utmost to ensure that no one is left behind at stops, but need the full co-operation of all passengers to achieve this.
