The only bus service to serve Bayford is Centrebus 308, operating just 2-3 times a day, with connections to Cuffley and Hertford.


The service runs to Moorgate via Highbury & Islington. The service uses Class 717 EMUs, as these are the only units cleared to Moorgate.

The typical off-peak weekday service is 2 trains per hour to Moorgate and to Hertford North; one per hour northbound continues to Letchworth Garden City via Stevenage.[3]

At weekends, the service is half-hourly to Moorgate and Hertford North and hourly to Stevenage. Southbound trains no longer run to London King's Cross on weekdays after 22.00 or at weekends since the December 2015 timetable change.
