Changes to local bus services

Most bus routes in West Sussex are operated on a commercial basis, but some routes are subsidised by the County Council to help them run.

West Sussex County Council has announced which bus subsidies have been reduced during the final phase of a three year programme to reduce non-commercial routes. The savings are part of the County Council’s drive to save £79 million following significant grant reductions from central government.

The savings have been implemented as part of a three-phase process. The first and second phases followed an 'impact assessment' last year when feedback from members of the public and other organisations was gathered and taken into account.

The third phase of bus subsidy reductions relates to the bus user survey which closed earlier this year. The survey gathered almost 8,250 responses from passengers and local organisations about how they used the routes. You can find out more about the outcomes of the survey and the recent changes to bus services from September 2012 in the supporting documents below.

For the latest information on bus timetables and routes, please check with your local bus operator or visit Traveline.

We have also produced a community led transport toolkit to help you explore alternative travel solutions and meet changing transport needs for you, your family and your community. Our Community Solutions Team can also arrange support for communities who wish to use the toolkit to resolve local transport issues or to discuss other options.
