Sunday Buses To Henfield & Horsham Saved!

The announcement in the summer that the Sunday services between Brighton, Horsham, Cowfold & Henfield might be scrapped has brought into focus the vulnerability of our rural communities.  By last Tuesday morning 500+ people had signed a petition to keep the buses and it's now approaching 1,000 signatures. It's been encouraging to see so many people become involved in the campaign; there have been meetings with local councillors, evening public meetings, and numerous tweets and Facebook messages created by people being angry at the service being threatened.

Helping Hand

HELPING HAND is a simple and subtle way for passengers who may need extra help to ask directly and quickly for what they need. The idea behind the scheme whether a person needs directions, helps with equipment or assistance with boarding is that bus drivers have the time (during the safety briefing) to give clear information about how to get what is needed. They are also trained as part of DfT's disability awareness training to be able to assist people if they need it.

As you know, we have all kinds of people on public transport. Some people are elderly and may need more time or assistance to board the bus. Others may be visually impaired and need directions at your bus stop or to help them find or position themselves safely on the bus. Still others have a hearing impairment and need some form of communication – text, sign language or audio – to communicate with the driver about their next stop.

A good bus driver should be able to sense when a passenger needs help, but this is not always possible. With Helping Hand, people who need little extra support will get the help they need quickly, without causing disruption to others. This helps improve the experience of everyone using our bus services. James Faulkner, Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime, said:"Helpng Hand will make a real difference to the bus network by providing a discreet way for passengers who may need a little extra help to tell the driver, thus giving them the opportunity to get off at their stop more easily".
