A significant number of bus service improvements are being made in East Sussex from Sunday 23 July. Most are funded through East Sussex County Council’s successful bid to UK Government, in support of our East Sussex Bus Service Improvement Plan (BSIP). Summary details are shown in the attached document. These also include changes to other services that have already been made or are planned. In respect of the upcoming changes, further detailed timetable information will be available on the websites of the bus operator(s) concerned over the coming weeks.
We would also draw attention to the lower fares that have been introduced as part of the County Council’s BSIP and you can read more about these here: www.eastsussex.gov.uk/roads-transport/public/bus-service-improvement-plan/lower-fares-on-east-sussex-bus-services. This is in addition to the Government’s ‘Help for Households’ fare cap (currently £2.00 for a single journey) about which more detail can be found here: www.eastsussex.gov.uk/roads-transport/public/buses/2-bus-fares
Many of you will be aware of the introduction of FlexiBus by the County Council. Operating in the rural areas of the county, this initiative aims to deliver the BSIP’s objective of providing residents in rural areas of East Sussex with access to a bus service to enable residents to access services such as health, education and retail or to connect to the wider bus or rail network.
