The rural nature of Leigh results in limited public transport
serving the village. However,
there is a daily bus service to both Reigate and Dorking, more extensive bus and rail services
can be accessed from there.
Following a Surrey wide review, new and changed bus services take
effect from 3rd September 2016. A new service is being introduced which
will connect Leigh with Crawley to the East and Dorking to the West,
and the 29 service is being withdrawn.
