WSCC Bus Survey Routes 69 & 71

Further to the recent Bus Strategy Consultation, West Sussex County Council would like to know more about how passengers use their supported bus routes across the county.

Most routes in West Sussex are operated by bus companies on a commercial basis, and these are not part of this survey. However, some routes receive a subsidy from WSCC to help them run. Listed below are the bus services which are currently either wholly or partly subsidised by the county council and are included in this additional survey:

Arriva – 63,  Brighton & Hove – 59A,  Compass Travel – 8/8A, 16, 19, 30, 31, 33, 36A/36C, 39, 42, 52, 62, 64, 66A/66C, 67, 69, 71, 74/74A/74B, 85/85A, 89, 93, 96, 99, 100, 150,  Metrobus- 61, 65, 84, 98, 200, 270, 272, 291, 606, 610, 692, 693, Stagecoach – 46, 47, 50, 54, 56, 70, 91/92/93,  Shared Taxi Service – Billilinks (Villages Transport Link)

WSCC is keen to gather feedback from passengers and others to help them understand the impact of any potential changes to the routes above. If you require any further information or to access the online questionnaire please go to: , or call 01243 642105 for a paper copy.

Closing date for responses is 18th November 2018

News about the A29

We have received notification about changes to the status of the A29. This has come about due to discussion between the Ministry of Transport, Highways and West Sussex CC, it seems. We have only received this news through a WSCC Councillor. It does look as though there is an intention to keep this low key! There was a short -rather irritated – piece about this in the recent Pulborough Parish Magazine from their PC Chairman.

The intention/proposal is to change the status of the A29 from a “local lorry route” to one of “National Heavy Goods vehicle” route. This will have the result of increasing HGV use of the A29  between Horsham and the South Coast. None of the towns and villages along the route appear to have been informed. There is a map ( to download) which shows the current lorry routes across the County; it is possible to imagine what the new one will look like and its effect at various points between Adversane and Fontwell.
