There are so many benefits to choosing to go by bus.
Parking stress? No thank you! Car running costs? Not on this journey!
Less damage to the environment? Sign me up!
Not only is there a whole bunch of excellent reasons to choose bus travel, but East Sussex County Council is also making it an easier and more accessible option for everyone.
Here’s five reasons to go for more bus, less fuss in East Sussex:
1. No bus route? No problem!
FlexiBus is a new, on-demand rideshare service for areas of the county with limited or no buses. Residents can book a FlexiBus journey to their nearest town, train station, hospital or other key destinations – and it costs the same as a standard bus.
Read more about how to book your first FlexiBus ride on the East Sussex website.
2. Fair fares for all
Not only has the national £2 fare been extended, but you can go further for less with a range of new ticket types and lower fares for all riders. Whether you’re travelling with little, or not so little ones (under 19s free with an adult), looking to hop on and off all day (now just a fiver!), or more – there’s a fare for everyone. Find out more about new and reduced fares.
3. Travel with ease
There are so many great places you can visit by bus, and you don’t even need to know the name of the nearest stop. On the traveline website you can search destination by postcode, street name or place – meaning you can plan your journey quickly and easily, even if you’re not a bus route pro.

4. Don’t forget your bus pass!
Travel for free: You can get your hands on a free bus pass if you are 66 or older or have a qualifying disability. Not only is this your ticket to ride for free on standard bus routes, but it’s also valid on the new FlexiBus service too!

5. Watch this space…
The future of buses in East Sussex is looking bright, with plenty more planned as part of the Bus Service Improvement Plan (BSIP). East Sussex has received £41.4million which will be used to fund service improvements such as bus frequency and longer operating hours (such as evenings and weekends) as well as the reduced fares and FlexiBus services mentioned above.
