East Sussex gains £41.4 million to improve bus services

East Sussex is one of 31 places across the country to receive funding to improve bus services.

The £41.4 million coming to East Sussex is from the government’s £1.2 billion bus transformation programme.

As a result, it is hoped just under two thirds of England’s population outside London will benefit from new investment to make buses more frequent, more reliable, easier to understand and use, cheaper, and greener.

Improvements will also include integrated ticketing and more bus lanes to speed up journeys.
