E-Shuttle Bus Service for rail commuters launches

Surrey Research Park is delighted to be launching a new E-Shuttle Bus Service, supported by Surrey Satellite Technology Limited (SSTL), from Guildford train station to the Park, which is home to 170 businesses and approximately 4500 employees.  

This is a free to use service for any tenant employee working at Surrey Research Park and will commence on Monday 6th September.  

Committed to improving transport and helping reduce emissions, Surrey Research Park has selected an electric vehicle to deliver this daily service.  The e-Shuttle will be branded and clearly identified for users.  

No bookings are required to make use of this service.  It is anticipated this will be a popular service and further electric shuttle services are expected to be rolled out to accommodate future demand.   

The collection and drop-off points are:   

Surrey Research Park 

  • Tycho House
  • Surrey Technology Centre  

Guildford Station 

  • Junction of Guildford Park Road and University of Surrey rear entrance (Grace Church Guildford) – 200m from the station rear entrance / exit.
