Brighton and Hove buses is continuing to provide services at current levels until further notice, subject to some changes to school services in some areas as requested by local authority partners.

On the trains

Uckfield railway line train operator, Southern, continues to run its Covid-19 timetable on services from Uckfield/Buxted to London.

This is a slight reduction on what was the normal pattern.

However, there are suggestions that the railways will soon introduce a “Sunday service plus” because of the drop in passengers since the new lockdown began.
