Bus Strategy Consultation

Closes 6 Jun 2018

Opened 12 Apr 2018


The County Council is developing a new Bus Strategy which will explore ways in which we can work with bus companies and other partners to help sustain and improve bus services.

Opportunities are also being explored to see how we can align our approach to local bus services with the West Sussex Plan which sets out how we will shape our services for the next five years.

Most bus services in West Sussex are operated on a fully commercial basis by bus companies with no financial support from the County Council. However some bus routes would not be viable without local authority funding. Currently about 15% of bus services in West Sussex receive a subsidy to help them run.

You can find out more about how we currently support local bus services and the proposals for the new Bus Strategy in the document below:
