West Sussex County Council is running a Bus User Survey seeking to understand the likely impacts of proposed changes to a number of local bus routes. They are proposing to make the changes to a number of subsidised local bus services next year, due to falling passenger numbers on some routes, and the impact of these on others. Our local routes effected are listed below.
Compass Travel 72/73 : Pulborough – Amberley – Storrington – Ashington
Service completely revised and extended to Horsham via West Chiltington Village, Shipley, Maplehurst and Nuthurst in mitigation for changes to services 74/75, 89 & 108. The 72/73 would no longer serve Thakeham and Ashington.
Compass Travel 74/75 : Storrington/Petworth – Barns Green – Horsham
Service withdrawn, partly replaced by diversion of some 100 journeys.
Compass Travel 100 : Burgess Hill – Pulborough – Horsham
A few journeys diverted via Barns Green between Billingshurst & Horsham to partly replace withdrawn route 74/75 above.
