Siena Chipol started this petition to West Sussex County Council (Highways and Transport)

Most students that live in Partridge Green, will either go to Steyning Grammar School or a Horsham School.
There is already a bus to Horsham, but nothing to Steyning. For Sixth Form Students, we would have to pay £600 a term to get the school bus to Steyning, or we are having to rely on our parents to get us there. If our parents are busy, we will have to try and get the school bus, even though we haven’t paid.
During school holidays- we have no direct public transport to Steyning and Steyning have no direct public transport to Partridge Green- unless we get an overpriced bus to Henfield and then the bus to Steyning, vice-versa.
But it is easy for the bus to detour through Steyning. There should be a slight change to the Number 17 Bus route, like this... Horsham-Cowfold-Partridge Green-Henfield-Steyning-Shoreham-Brighton. Instead of the 17 going through Devils Dyke area, it should go through Steyning instead.
If this change was applied- it will impact not only myself, and students, it will also have a large impact on the village, as we can travel to Steyning every 30 minutes, where there are tea shops, a Sussex Produce Company and Cobble Stone walk. Partridge Green has relatively nothing to do, and we don’t want to go to Brighton or Horsham everyday or spend extortionate amounts on the overpriced buses and especially changing buses to get somewhere else for once. Students also cannot just rely on parents to get us places.
I understand that there is a bus to Shoreham that goes through Steyning every Thursday but Steyning Sixth Form students do not just go to school each Thursday and it still means having to rely on 2 buses or our parents, to get us to Steyning.
Please sign this petition to help change the Number 17 Bus Route.
Thank you :)
