Public transport

The Borough of Woking benefits from excellent public transport links.

Rail

The Borough's main railway station in central Woking, one of the busiest in Surrey, connects directly with London Waterloo. Trains depart every few minutes for the capital. From Waterloo, it is just a short journey on London Underground (northern line) to St Pancras, the international Eurostar terminal.

Woking station also provides direct, scheduled fast rail links with locations across the south and south west of the country, including Exeter, Cardiff, Salisbury, Bristol, Winchester, Bournemouth and the international ferry ports of Portsmouth and Southampton.

The three other stations within the Borough boundary - Worplesdon, Brookwood and West Byfleet - link the rest of the Borough with Woking Town Centre and other commercial centres in the area.

Bus and coach services

Woking also has a network of bus and coach services which link the town centre with the 14 village centres in the Borough and beyond.

Timetables for bus services across Surrey can be found on the Surrey County Council website.

Information about the national bus permit scheme is available elsewhere on this site.

Air

Woking is located approximately mid-way between London's Heathrow and Gatwick airports. Travellers into and out of the Borough can take advantage of the fast, reliable Railair coach link between Woking railway station and Heathrow leaving every half an hour throughout the day, as well as the train connections with Gatwick (via Guildford).

The Woking rail hub

To capitalise on its excellent transport links, and inspired by the Government's wish to promote an integrated transport network, Woking Borough Council is working in partnership with the transport induustry and local organisations to promote Woking's railway station as a rail hub for the 21st Century.

The benefits of an improved and upgraded public transport system for the area, enhancement of current links with London's Airports, plus an improvement in traffic flows around the region will further add to the Borough's reputation as a well connected business centre.
