MANY people would like to see a direct bus route between the Eastbourne DGH and Conquest at Hastings.

Here’s our MP Caroline Ansell: “I spoke to the Transport Secretary about Eastbourne and shared the local work I’ve been doing with Stagecoach during the pandemic to link our hospitals.

Current journey times are 2hrs + , they could be 50 mins, become a real choice, ease congestion and save tonnes and tonnes of carbon.

This local route proposal, said the Minister, would certainly qualify under ‘socially necessary’.  

I’ll be making representations to East Sussex County Council who will be setting up a Bus Advisory Board.”
