Improvements to bus services in Brighton
3:00pm Sunday 11th August 2013 in News
CHANGES to bus routes will see services for more schools in Brighton and Hove as well as later buses serving the city.
Changes to the council-funded buses come into force next month, including some alterations to school routes.
Service 72 from Whitehawk to Longhill School will run five minutes earlier in the mornings to improve reliability, while a full range of tickets will be accepted on the 74 from Lewes Road to Patcham High and on the 96 from Patcham to Blatchington Mill and Hove Park schools.
The route of the 91 to Cardinal Newman School will be extended to serve Ovingdean and Woodingdean, which will start on September 2.
Other improvements include a later ‘last bus’ on Sunday evenings on the 81C service from Meadowview to Goldstone Valley from September 15.
Ian Davey, lead member for transport at Brighton and Hove City Council, said: “We are delighted that working together with our partners the bus operators have been able to adjust services to improve bus travel for passengers.
“Bus travel continues to be a popular choice for people visiting or working in the city and their input has been vital to helping us improve these services.”
