Coronavirus information regularly changes so we update this section with the latest guidance as soon as we can.


How transport and parking is being affected and what this means for you.



When travelling on public transport, passengers are urged to follow the Government's safer travel guidance. This will help you stay safe and protect others by controlling the spread of the virus.

In line with the latest Government guidance, face coverings are now compulsory on all public transport in England. Unless you are exempt, you must wear a face covering throughout your journey.

You can also plan ahead by checking the latest information before you travel on your bus operator's website.

Bus passes

Free off-peak bus travel on timetabled services from 9.30am weekdays and all day at weekends remains available for those who have an older person's bus pass.

You can use your pass at any time of the day if you hold a disabled person’s bus pass.


Blue Badges

Most staff who answer these enquiries and deal with applications are working remotely. It may take time for us to deal with correspondence sent to us by post. Please either apply online or email us with any questions at If you are unable to apply online, please phone 01243 777653.

On-street parking

Residents who live within any of the seven controlled parking zones in West Sussex and have been furloughed may apply for a dispensation notice to park (if they do not already have an annual permit). These cost £5.00 per month and are available from the relevant district or borough council parking service.

Evidence from your employer will be required in order to obtain a dispensation notice.
