London Buses routes 406, 418, K2 and Mobility route 965 serve the station directly. Routes 281 and K1 are accessible with a short walk, though given they both service the busy main line Surbiton railway station, interchange is less popular by virtue of the greater frequency of service from Surbiton to London Waterloo.
