East Sussex bus pass timings relaxed in Covid jabs roll-out
Concessionary bus pass holders will be able to travel before 9.30am to help the national Covid-19 vaccination campaign.
From today (January 18), East Sussex County Council has temporarily relaxed the rules to help elderly and vulnerable residents travel to early morning vaccination appointments.
Cllr Claire Dowling, lead member for transport and environment, said: “The Covid vaccination programme is vital in the fight against the global pandemic that has affected so many in our county.
“We recognise the importance of our residents being able to travel easily to appointments to receive their vaccinations and will, with support from bus operators, relax the rules to support this.”
Travel should be for essential journeys only.
The relaxation of rules is expected to continue until school fully reopen.
More details will be available on the East Sussex County Council website with the information on bus services.
