Your Guide to Transport Options from The Hedgerows


Welcome to The Hedgerows

Welcome to the The Hedgerows Travel Information site. This site is designed to assist in making your move as easy as possible.


It provides information on how to get around using public transport and other environmentally friendly methods to commute to work and school, or explore the area.

The Travel Guide Site

The Hedgerows is situated between the villages of Eastergate and Westergate, within walking distance of local schools, shops, leisure facilities and restaurants. 

The Travel Plan

The Travel Information Site is one of many measures included in the Travel Plan produced for The Hedgerows and agreed with West Sussex County Council.

The Travel Plan is a document which contains a package of measures to encourage you to try sustainable alternatives to travelling by car.

The Travel Plan can offer real benefits not only to you, but also to the community that surrounds you. It can help to relieve local parking and congestion problems and improve public transport connections across the area.



Walking is one of the cheapest, easiest, and simplest forms of transport, which is boosted by there being a range of shops and services accessible within a short walk from The Hedgerows.

Walking offers the greatest potential to replace short car and public transport trips, particularly those under a two-kilometre distance. It provides a healthy alternative to the private car and typically forms a component of many journeys made by public transport or by car.

The Hedgerows provides direct walking links with connections around the site and to the local area. Within The Hedgerows green areas containing grass, parks, wooded areas, public gardens and benches are provided. Surrounding The Hedgerows, it is easy to walk to a range of local facilities with pavements and walking links provided along local roads to ensure you can easily and safely walk around the town and access many local facilities on foot.

You can walk to many local facilities within a 30-minute period from The Hedgerows. To help, we have summarised the distance and walk times to several local facilities below. Bus stops are near The Hedgerows within an approximately 3-minute walk (250m), with local schools, convenience stores and public houses accessible locally within a 30-minute walk (2.4km).

If you’ve never heard of run commuting, then it’s exactly what it sounds like. People choose to run to and from work, rather than driving, getting the bus, or using other modes.

It’s a trend that is growing in popularity too! In 2018, Strava recorded a 70% increase in run commutes compared to 2017, which itself was up 50% on 2016!

Running really is the perfect way to be more active – it’s free and you can start right outside your door! You can do it as little or as often as you like and, with run commuting you can fit it into your daily routine.

Running for Leisure 

Parkrun organise free, weekly, 5km timed runs around the world. They are open to everyone, free, and are safe and easy to take part in.
These events take place in pleasant parkland surroundings and they encourage people of every ability to take part; from those taking their first steps in running to Olympians.

Bognor Regis parkrun starts every Saturday at 9am at Hotham Park. For more information see:

Some Tips for Run Commuting 

  • Prepare the night before

  • Plan your route

  • Build up gradually to the full commute - how about getting public transport halfway and running the rest?

  • Buy a good backpack to carry everything with

  • Invest in a good coat, reflect clothing, and a light for the winter - be safe, be seen!I

  • Pack light to save weight 

  • If safe to do so, listen to some music or a podcast to help the miles fly by

  • Figure out your shower situation at work beforehand 

  • Find a goal to train for, or a running buddy to help you  stay motivated 



Why Public Transport?
Public Transport can be quicker, cheaper and more convenient than using your car and provides a significant environmental benefit. Using public transport can remove the stress of finding a car parking space, sitting in traffic and the costs of owning a car. Furthermore, you can travel to your destination while you relax with a newspaper or catch-up on social media.​

Some Safety Tips if Meeting a New Car Share Buddy

  • Avoid exchanging your full name or address before you've met someone. 

  • You're never under obligation to take a lift. If you don't feel comfortable, don't go through with the lift - even if it's been agreed. 

  • As with any activity that involves meeting new people, it's advisable to meet in a public place the first time. It's always a good idea to let friends and family know your plans too. 


Benefits of Car Sharing

  • Reduces travel costs;

  • Reduces wear and tear on your own vehicle​;

  • Helps reduce congestion;

  • Reduces stress levels related to driving; and

  • Expands social networks. 



Electric Vehicles (EVs) are becoming more and more popular. Unlike conventional vehicles which burn petrol or diesel, EVs are powered by batteries just like your smartphone. 

The main advantage of EVs is that they produce zero-emissions when you are using them. This means that they provide local environmental benefits including cleaner air and reduced noise in urban areas.

Today’s EVs have the latest cutting-edge technology and can drive over 200 miles on a single charge, with some able to cover over 400 miles on a single charge - that’s the equivalent of The Hedgerows to Newcastle! 

Why go electric?

Cheaper to Run

Compared to petrol or diesel, electricity is cheap. Per mile an EV could cost less than a third of what a traditional car costs. 

Cheaper to maintain

Compared to a traditional car, EVs have a lot fewer moving parts, with just three main components - the on-board charger, inverter and motor. This means there are fewer things requiring maintenance and servicing is simpler, all of which saves you money. You’ll never need to change the oil again!

Better for the environment

EVs have no tailpipe emissions, and don’t even have an exhaust. Even when accounting for generating the electricity they use, EVs produce significantly fewer emissions than traditional cars.

Easy Home Charging

With an EV you will never need to go to a petrol station again. Simply plug your car in when you get home to charge overnight and it’s ready for you in the morning.


Did you know?

Every 3 minutes a new EV is registered on UK roads

Quiet and quick

EVs offer a smooth and quiet ride.

Did you know?

Car travel for food shopping account for about 40% of all UK shopping trips by car, or about 5% of all car use in the UK!


Reducing the need to travel to work or while at work can save time and money while benefiting the environment.


If you work from home just once a fortnight you are reducing your commute by 10%, which saves you both time and money. 


Studies have shown that people who work from home have lower carbon emissions, reduce air pollution, use less petrol / diesel, use less paper, use less plastic and have a better work life balance, so why not give it a go? You may even find you are more productive as you're not being interrupted.


Remote and flexible working allows you to balance your work and home life commitments and leave you feeling great!
