Hospital Hopper

The hospital hopper is our shuttle service between Ashford Hospital and St Peter’s Hospital which operates Monday to Friday.

It is free to all staff, patients and visitors and takes approximately 25 minutes outside of rush hour.

A reduced service runs at weekends and bank holidays for staff only.

 

Please note that due to Health and Safety guidelines and the limited capacity of the buses, we have no secure storage for wheelchairs, baby buggies, pushchairs and walking frames. Unfortunately, this means that we cannot accept them on the hopper bus and would advise that you use the scheduled 557 service between sites instead (for which normal bus fares apply).

Please note that the Hopper uses the bus stop on the slope between the maternity block and the outpatients’ entrance at St Peter’s. The old stops are no longer in use.
