New bus service to launch in Crawley


Passengers will get a free breakfast snack at the launch of a new Crawley bus service.

The Sussex Bus company’s Red Arrow 500 will operate between 6:10am and 7:01pm, every 30 minutes, Monday to Saturday, and will serve communities between Tilgate and Gatwick Airport South.

To celebrate the launch, all passengers travelling before 11am on December 1 will receive a free breakfast bar.

The service will link Tilgate, Furnace Green, Three Bridges, Maidenbower and Crabbet Park, and be a fast connection to Gatwick Airport South, Manor Royal, City Place and Crawley town centre.

Russell Stepe, director of The Sussex Bus, said: “ This route has been devised as a result of ongoing demand from our customers and we are confident that our great value, friendly and helpful service will be a popular choice. We are looking forward to welcoming everyone on board.”
