West Sussex County Council says it work with bus companies to ensure services are provided during coronavirus outbreak.
Roger Elkins, cabinet member for highways and infrastructure, said: “To try to help during the coronavirus outbreak, pensioners and vulnerable people with West Sussex County Council bus passes can now use them earlier on weekdays. This is so they can take advantage of some supermarkets’ first hour of trading being dedicated to older and vulnerable shoppers.
“From now, and for the duration of the outbreak, residents can use their passes prior to 9.30am on weekdays. They could already use them at any time on weekends and public holidays.”
Bus pass holders are being urged to follow government guidance on social distancing when travelling on public transport.
Following the announcement that schools will be closing to all except vulnerable pupils and the children of key workers, the council is also working to understand what transport is needed:
Parents who do not accompany their children to school are being advised to have a contingency plan agreed with their child in case transport is late or does not arrive. This is particularly important at the moment.
