Storrington & Sullington are located in a rural setting in the South of Horsham District. Though there are public transport services available, it is not always easy to move around by public transport at times convenient for a particular regular or one-off need. It is almost essential to have a car, else be prepared to pay for a taxi.
However, in the spirit of trying to reduce the use of private cars, their increasing running costs, and the ever increasing numbers on the roads, we offer here below some information and contacts for the various services that are available.
If all else fails, or you want help in finding the route and service you require, use the Traveline Public Transport information service by telephone (0870 608 2608 then after hearing the greeting message, slowly key in 820, the call centre code for our area) You could also use their web-based search & help (click here)
