Surprising things you see on a walk #3: someone encouraging you to cheat

Published 15 March 2015

Sign on a bus stop informing South Downs Way walkers about bus services

If you saw this at a bus stop whilst you were out on the South Downs Way, what would you think?

Notice to Passengers

Walkers making their way further eastwards along the South Downs Way may wish to use the facilities provided by Service 100 at Storrington, Washington, Steyning or Upper Beeding to reach Henfield, Burgess Hill or Pulborough, Billingshurst.

Alternatively, Service 99 can be joined at this stop to reach Petworth or opposite to reach Chichester.

Bet it’s “They want us to cheat!”

Don’t worry though. This handy notice from Compass Travel is more about getting walkers to their accommodation rather than using the bus to bypass chunks of the walk. Still, useful information targeted at walkers at a bus stop? That is most unexpected.
