From Chesham/amersham To Aylesbury
Posted 14 February 2011 - 11:46 AM
Hoping you can help me; I have a possibility of getting a new job in Aylesbury. I live in Chesham but can be dropped off in Amersham in the mornings by my other half.
Is the Chiltern the only way to get to Aylesbury? Or are there buses that take you there? At the moment I work in London and pay £6 each way, I thought working in Aylesbury would be cheaper but from looking at National Rail the fares are actually £6.90? I take it getting a bus would be cheaper (although take longer but I use the Met Line, I'm used to long journeys!).
Thanks in advance.

True but she would still have to get to Amersham from Chesham and return to Chesham from Amersham.Shame the bus doesnt serve rush hour better.
Tiger Line is a lot cheaper than rail but there are only 5 services a day now. Journey time from Chesham Broadway to Aylesbury Bus Station is 37 minutes compared with 24 minutes by rail from Amersham.

A season ticket wouldn't help you in this case - tickets from Amersham to Aylesbury are priced as off-peak all day, as you are going away from London on the outward journey. Season tickets are based on the peak fares, and a weekly is more than the price of 5 return tickets.
It may have changed, but last year the fare from Chesham to Aylesbury was LESS than from Amersham to Aylesbury. I don't know why...
