Council check: West Sussex County Council

Each Sunday, we take a look at how one of our local authorities is doing in its promotion of bus travel in its area. This week: West Sussex County Council.

Where do the buses go?

There's a county-wide map plus a series of more localised maps including town centre enlargements. 5 out of 5.


No timetables on the council's website, but there's a clear link to Traveline, on which you can search by route number and/or location. Links to the bus operators' websites are also provided. 2 out of 5.


The new Discovery multi-operator ticket is mentioned, as is Plusbus, which is available in Chichester, Horsham, Crawley, Haywards Heath, East Grinstead, Worthing and Bognor Regis. There is however no information on the cost of simple single or return journeys, nor for operators' own day and season tickets. 3 out of 5.


A great selection of maps. Timetables could be easier to find, but are there. Fares information is lacking, but the introduction of a multi-operator ticket valid throughout the county and beyond is a big plus. West Sussex County Council scores a total of 10 out of 15.

  1. Yet another authority that did once produce some excellent printed timetable books and maps. Thankfully the operators do produce some reasonable information - if only they were all prepared to post it!
