New buses have been bought to upgrade journeys on public transport.

The seven brand new buses bought by Worthing-based Compass Travel will make up for the loss of services following the demise of operator Countryliner Sussex.

Services set to benefit are the 121 between Lewes and Newick, the 124 between Alfriston and Ringmer College, the 125 between Barcombe and Alfriston, the 126 between Seaford and Eastbourne, the 127, 128 and 129 Lewes routes, the 166 between Lewes, Plumpton and Haywards Heath, and the 824 between Lewes, Ditchling and Burgess Hill.

The new buses are British-built Enviro 200s manufactured by Alexander Dennis and supplied by Steve Swain of Southdown PSV at Copthorne.
