Southern Rail Replacement Service

January Southern Rail Strikes – Coach Service from Oxted to Sevenoaks

Here’s the latest information about Allenby Coach Hire’s commuter run to Sevenoaks.

We have been hired by Southern to provide a coach service from 06.08 to 20.55 with other coach companies also being hired in. This service will be free of charge as far as we know.

We are also being approached by customers who used us during the last disruption saying that they would still prefer to use us, using the system we had in place last time. This would involve a payment of £10.00 per trip.

We are happy to offer this but obviously we run the risk of people using the free service and us not being required.

We are sending this post out to gauge whether there is enough of a demand for our pre-booked service to make it worthwhile to run.

Would you please indicate your preference by e-mail to or Facebook. Then depending on the demand we will make a decision on Friday afternoon.

Just to remind everybody. Our coach would run:

Oxted – Sevenoaks Sevenoaks – Oxted
06:00 18.00
07:00 19.00
08:00 20.00

The cost would be £10.00 each way, collected at the start of each journey. You would need to pre-book your seat as this is a legal requirement.
