    700 bus

    by Jules , 23 days ago

    At last, bus stops now open at Merston Corner, it looks very different here now, the electronic signboard is very useful! Just waiting on the pedestrianised crossing to be functional. Not missing the walk to and from Groves Farm one bit. Credit given to the workmen

    700 bus

    by Jules , 3 months ago
    Wasn't good getting the bus from Groves Farm tonight, I have to cross the road to get to the stop, and not one driver wanted to stop to let me cross, I literally inched my way over until a car was far enough from me to make it to the crossing in the middle, I'd already walked about a mile in the dark to get there!

    51 Selsey bus

    by Jules , 3 months ago
    Waited earlier for the bus from Selsey High Street, a lot of people were waiting already, delayed somewhere, the bus app wasn't working so couldn't tell if it had been cancelled or not. By the time we had got to the Asda bus stop, it was pretty full

    700 bus

    by Jules , 3 months ago
    Prior to getting the 51 tonight, was waiting for the 700 at Groves Farm, not my usual stop though as mine is suspended due to "improvements for cyclists and pedestrians " bus app said it was on time @ 1815, arrived at 1822 - don't like waiting here as there are no street lights, so going to be fun next week when the clocks go back! The 700 arrived, was greeted by a scary driver, reason being the bus was decorated for Halloween together with some music, which I thought very amusing, I would have given a donation had I...

    51 Selsey bus

    by Jules , 3 months ago
    Didn't have long to wait for this bus, after getting the 700 bus tonight, very busy though. The automatic timetable said that 2 for Selsey were on the way, so bus probably full as there's obviously a delay somewhere for the buses to catch up with each other

    Vanishing 52 and 53 to the Witterings

    by Walking canal, 4 months ago
    Frequently walk into Chichester as we live alongside the canal and it is our bit of exercise just to have a wander around Bishops Palace Gardens or Priory Park for instance. Walk back along South Street have a look at the display board for times of return buses outside Iceland and, whether it is because they are every 15 minutes and some have been delayed, even though the display board reads, say 2 minutes, it drops out and doesn't turn up. We believe the bus gets turned around at the bus station to save time but it is very frustrating... Continue reading

    On the 700

    by Captain B, 10 months ago

    14/03/22, 7.30am - Today’s bus journey on the 700 started with a shower of rain. At the stop, in the centre of town - that had no shelter, so all waiting passengers were soaked - I overheard someone saying, “the bus has been cancelled due to Covid, they can’t get the driver”…there was no mention of this on the app or anywhere. Five minutes later the bus arrived. I thought it would be packed but it was easy to find a seat. One of my favourite times of the day. From the top deck of the 700 you’ve got a... Continue reading
