ENGLAND v SCOTLAND: Buses to avoid Maidstone town centre
Friday 18th June 2021
BUSES will not be stopping in town centre during England's next two Euro 2021 matches to avoid rowdy football fans.
Arriva will miss out central Maidstone tonight for the England V Scotland fixture and on Tuesday night for the match against the Czech Republic.
Many town centre pubs and sports bars will be welcoming fans in to watch the matches on big screens.
There have been instances across Kent where drunk supporters have surrounded buses and frightened pasSengers.
But Nu-Venture will be running its services into the county town as normal.
Arriva 5,12, 82 and 89 services will go on to Mill Street as normal and then into The Cannon, round St Peter's Bridge, along Archbishop's Way and Palace Avenue and then continue along the normal route up Lower Stone Street.
The 3,7 and 71 services run to Palace Avenue, stopping at Lower Stone Street. They depart via Knightrider Street, Archbishop's Way and St Peter's Bridge but will not go to The Cannon.
