#WestSussBus online page for bus improvements
#WestSussBus is the online engagement page about local buses which is now live and will be around for at least the next year. It’s been set up for people to inform the West Sussex County Council (WSCC) of their experiences, comments and ideas about local buses, and to help them decide where improvements are needed.
Anyone can post suggestions, ideas and comments on #WestSussBus and can also celebrate what’s good about local buses and point out what doesn’t quite work.
One of WSCC’s first areas of interest is to find out people’s top-five priorities for improving bus services in West Sussex.
Bus journal and personal experiences on buses
#WestSussBus has opportunities for debates, being creative with ideas and making videos to explain how things really are on the buses that people use. People can also send their ‘bus journal’ – a diary-style contribution building up over time a more complete picture of experiences as a bus passenger.
Those who don’t currently travel by bus can still take part by letting WSCC know what improvement to local services would encourage them to ride on buses.
West Sussex bus routes and taking part in online page
Most bus services in West Sussex are run commercially, without funding or control from the County Council. However, some routes receive a subsidy from the council to help them run. Later this year the County Council will form an ‘Enhanced Partnership’ with local bus companies which will see them working together much more closely to improve services.
