Stop East Sussex County Council’s bus cuts!

20140829 - Bus consultation logoIn an astounding attack on essential transport, East Sussex County Council is proposing cuts of £1.69 million to bus services, including those to Seaford and the Conquest Hospital, along with fare increases approaching 30%.
