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.

Speedwatch Active

We carried out our first official Speedwatch event this week – Friday evening – a very busy time. The majority of drivers saw us, and quickly adjusted their speed. We did “book” two drivers who were well over the base 35mph allowance – and we missed one white van  doing 60+! A mixture of North and South bound traffic.

We shall – clearly  – not be advertising our ‘watches’ in advance, but we suspect that “word will get around”. We received a range of ‘hand signals’ from drivers, but also a great deal of encouragement from local residents. We have also gained one new volunteer already.

Thank you to the volunteers who attended to practice their skills at car recognition and number plate recall!
