Eastbourne Coachways to stop services

Eastbourne Coachways to stop services

From 25 July, Eastbourne Coachways is to stop all services following withdrawal of its PSV operator’s licence by the Traffic Commissioners.

The decision was made after concerns were raised relating to business links between Eastbourne Coachways and Renown Transport Services. Renown Services cancelled its bus service in October 2018 without giving the required amount of notice to the Traffic Commissioner.

East Sussex County Council has secured replacement services with Stagecoach but increased operating costs mean the services on offer won’t be as comprehensive as those currently being provided by Eastbourne Coachways.

Bexhill Community Bus is considering possible changes to its local bus services in the town to see whether it can expand coverage.
