As part of Phase 1 of Surrey County Council's Bus Review, Abellio Surrey decided to take on route 515 on a commercial basis, with a revised timetable. The 515A Sunday service was increased to every hour from every two hours. Previously, route 515A ran from Esher to Thames Ditton via Scilly Isles (not serving Lower Green), and then followed the normal Monday - Saturday route to Kingston. Routes 218 and 471 provided the Monday - Saturday service along Portsmouth Road via Scilly Isles, however neither of these ran on Sundays, hence the 515A took their route on Sundays. However, as part of the Bus Review, routes 218 and 471 (now 458 and 459 respectively), have a Sunday service provided by the 458. Therefore, route 515A no longer needed to serve Scilly Isles and was diverted to instead run to Kingston via Hampton Court, to provide a link for visitors on Sundays. The changes came into effect on 28 August 2010.
