I commented last week on the rather poor bus service serving the village of Fulking at the foot of the South Downs, in West Sussex.
Today however I read that the rather sparse service of two buses a week (the No. 62 between Midhurst and Brighton) will be withdrawn from September 2012.
West Sussex County Council’s latest (and supposedly final) round of bus subsidy cuts will reduce some bus services and lead to the complete withdrawal of others.
The reason for the withdrawal of this service is said to be down “to insufficient passenger numbers”, not surprising really, a service consisting of only two buses a week was never going to be successful in making people give up their cars and take the bus.
So if you were thinking of taking the bus to Fulking you better make it quick, you’ve just got a couple of months left.
