Two bus services connect Pease Pottage with the outside world. Both use the bus stop outside the old church, opposite the Black Swan pub, as well as a stop on each side of the road at Tilgate Forest Row.

The timetable below came into force on 1 September 2012, when Metrobus routes 271 and 273 were in effect merged, to give an hourly service between Crawley and Brighton. There is no longer a direct bus service between Pease Pottage and Haywards Heath.

For the latest and most accurate timetable, as well as information about tickets and fares, please check Metrobus’s website, which includes a link to timetables and fare charts in PDF.

Route 273 adds:

As of August 2013, the 271 route was extended to provide a bus service on Sundays and bank holidays. There is also a night bus, route N73, which connects Crawley and Brighton; the nearest stop to Pease Pottage is by the Half Moon pub in Southgate, a sobering two–mile walk after a night out in Brighton.

During the current (August 2013) roadworks on the A23, there are some changes to the 273 route. For details, see the Metrobus website.

Fares

At August 2013, there do not appear to be any return tickets available from Pease Pottage. A single ticket from Pease Pottage to Crawley costs:
