Please object to the proposed cuts to bus services

First published in News

Supported bus services in East Sussex are under threat.

The county council proposes to cut £1.8 million from its transport budget over two years which will have a devastating effect in some areas.

Many rural bus services could be cut from six days a week to just two days and others halved in frequency.

Local services in Lewes could also be cut as well as the evening service on Brighton & Hove routes 28/29 to Ringmer, Uckfield and Tunbridge Wells.

We urge bus users to object to their local councillors and MPs and to respond to the consultation which closes on 28 September at www.eastsussex.gov.uk/haveyoursay.

Andrew Boag, Chair Brighton Area Buswatch, Borough Street, Brighton

cuts will always happen if the services involved are not being used. you cannot expect a bus company to run buses up and down when there is no one travelling. i would think there is limited demand for late night buses in rural sussex, and even between brighton and lewes/ringmer.
