Sutton's new on-demand bus service has extended to Beddington and Wallington.

GoSutton allows commuters to book seats on minibuses that stop at convenient locations, particularly ones not served by public transport, through a mobile app or over the phone.

Launched in May, the scheme aims to reduce car use by making public transport more flexible and responsive to the specific needs of service users.

Tom Brake, MP for Carshalton and Wallington, said: “I am delighted to see the GoSutton service being extended across a wider part of the borough, adding to the traditional bus network, and improving the links with existing public transport.

“The popularity of this service is growing and I know that residents really want to see the service cover the entire borough in the near future.

"I will be working with local Councillors and Transport for London to make that happen.

"It would go a long way towards improving the provision of public transport for everyone in the community.”

The service now covers from the A24 in the west to Purley Way in the east, and from St Helier Hospital in the north to Belmont Station in the south - including Valley Park Retail, The Phoenix Centre and Cheam Leisure Centre.

To mark the expansion, GoSutton have lowered the price of a ride to just £2 anywhere in the service area until the end of August.

The fully accessible buses, which can seat up to 14 people, all have USB charging points and free WiFi on board.

They operate in a defined area, rather than following a preplanned route, stopping around every 200 metres.

Customers travelling on the new buses can to book a seat in real time, through a system powered by advanced algorithms which maps out an efficient route.
