Following government advice to only travel if your journey is essential local bus companies have revised timetables across the network, though key routes will continue to operate to ensure customers can access critical services and key workers are able to travel.

333 - Sittingbourne to Faversham
via Bapchild, Teynham and Ospringe
Swale Borough Council has decided to suspend Brown Bin collections until further notice during this Coronavirus outbreak.
Swale Borough Council are asking for volunteers to help support vulnerable people during the coronavirus outbreak.
The council has been asked by the government to coordinate how to get support out to the most vulnerable people in the community.
As the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak continues to develop, Swale Borough Council has begun activating plans to maintain essential services across the borough.
At present, council meetings are being scaled back to only those we are legally required to continue, and we are awaiting government advice on running these remotely - either online or by phone.
Council officers have begun working remotely, and for now council offices remain open to the public for essential services such as supporting rough sleepers and those at risk of homelessness.
