Council check: East Sussex County Council

Each Sunday, we look at the bus-promoting activities of a local transport authority. Today, it's the turn of East Sussex County Council.

Where do the buses go?

This interactive map shows all bus routes in the county. There are also enlarged maps of the major towns. 5 out of 5.


There are links to timetables from the interactive map and also on Traveline. 4 out of 5.


Details of some day tickets, including the multi-operator Discovery ticket are here. It is not exhaustive however, missing out some of the single-operator local day tickets. Plusbus, available in Lewes, Eastbourne, Hastings and Rye, is mentioned. 3 out of 5.


Excellent maps, timetables linked to on third-party sites, but not enough information on fares. East Sussex County Council scores a total of 12 out of 15.


  1. Yet another county that used to do such much more in the way of printed material etc.

    Now all they want to do is cut back the network. The results of a consultation on this are due soon. The plan is/was to remove funding for Sunday and evening services, reduce the frequency on supported urban and rural services.

  2. It is the way bus services are going , constantly cutting the services.

    Very little thought as well goes into Sunday service the usual approach is to provide a 2 hourly service on a couple of main routes which is really of no use to anyone. They need to look at specific Sunday routes. If people arte using buses the chances are they have not a car so they need to look at taking them into residential areas
