Bus pass holders will now have to pay before 9.30am after East Sussex County Council decided to put back the start of free travel by half an hour.

The changes, which come into effect on April 1, have been introduced to try and reduce the county council’s spending on transport. The 2014/2015 budget has been set at £10.9 million.

However, County Hall was quick to point out the 9.30am start time is in line with much of the country and that holders will still be able to benefit from free travel until as late as 11pm.
