Temporary changes to bus services

Government has asked bus operators and local transport authorities to reduce bus services to the minimum level of service necessary to support essential journeys safely. From next week there will be a number of temporary changes to bus services in East Sussex, still providing for a basic level of provision for those who still need to travel. A summary is attached. Regular updates continue to be provided on the ESCC website page:

From Monday 18 January concessionary bus pass holders in East Sussex will be able to travel for free before the usual 9.30am time restriction. This will also assist pass holders who need to travel by bus to early morning COVID-19 vaccination appointments. This temporary change to the concessionary bus scheme is expected to continue until schools fully reopen, after which buses before 9.30am are expected to be busy again.
