Stride & Ride is a commuter bus service running Monday to Friday (excluding Bank Holidays) from the bus stop at the back of Sainsbury’s/Thorley Shopping Centre, Friedburg Avenue (this is close to the underpass linking St Michael’s Mead to Thorley) to the back of Bishop's Stortford Train Station. In the evenings passengers will be collected from the  front of the Train Station at Bus Interchange Stop E and returned to Sainsbury's/Thorley Shopping Centre.

You can purchase a ticket to depart in the mornings at 06:30, 06:50, 07:09, 07:30 or 07:49. In the evenings you may take any of the bus trips leaving the Train Station at 17:50, 18:15, 18:35, 18:55, 19:15, 19:35 and 19:50 (space permitting). If a train is delayed and imminent in the evening the bus will wait beyond the scheduled departure time if feasible.

When tickets go on sale they will be available here.


The Stride & Ride service is supported by Bishop's Stortford Town Council and East Herts Council.
