Heathrow has teamed up with First Bus to offer a new route and RailAir service from Guildford to Heathrow, which will take just under 60 minutes and has the potential to take thousands of cars off the road every year.
RailAir, from First Bus, operate 2 routes to Heathrow departing from either Reading or Guildford Train Station, which run 7 days a week. You can travel from Reading Train Station to Heathrow Airport on the RA1 service up-to every 20 minutes and now from Guildford Train Station to Heathrow Airport on the RA2 service up-to every hour.
The service will operate hourly starting at Guildford Train station from 03:40 to 23:00 every day. It will call at the University of Surrey, RHS Garden Wisley and on through to Heathrow Terminal 5, the Compass Centre and Central Bus Station.
The new route ‘RA2’ will provide the South of England with better connections, timed to connect with fast trains from Portsmouth, Petersfield, Havant and Haslemere. The Guildford RailAir coach link will also make passenger journeys easier to plan and purchase with the introduction of through ticketing. Linked to the rail network, passengers will be able to purchase one ticket to use on the South Western Railway network between Portsmouth and Guildford and for an extra £9 add-on the coach service.
