Timetable changes to our West Sussex bus routes from 30th March 2015
We are pleased to be able to introduce a new Sunday & Bank Holiday service on Route 7 – which we
continue to operate on behalf of Stagecoach. This service will be operated on a trial basis with financial
support from Sompting Parish Council and Sompting Big Local. It will be numbered 7A and will operate
via East Worthing and Worthing hospital to give improved journey opportunities.
Unfortunately the improved hourly service we introduced for Routes 66, 66A, 67, has not been sufficiently well used to be viable and the timetable now returns to its previous level. Routes 66A and 67 have been combined to give a new 67 service serving both Glenwood and North Felpham. Likewise the extended 85 & 85A timetable between Arundel and Worthing has not been well enough used and will now revert to operating just between Chichester and Arundel. We are doing all we can to continue a service on Route 106 but have also now had to reduce the frequency to operate 3 days a week. We are really sorry to have to reduce these services but unfortunately if they are not sufficiently used by passengers and are therefore not financially viable, then there is really no option.
We are pleased that our usual 88 bus will operate once again to the South of England show from
Haywards Heath station. From Good Friday until the end of October we are also again running our popular 769 service, on Sundays and Bank Holidays, to the Bluebell Railway and Sheffield Park Garden. If you travel by bus you get a discount on a return steam train ride, so come and enjoy a day out!
