If B&H buses are involved, they will find a way of twisting the results in their favour. Sounds a good idea but a non starter from the off.

Well of course it will cause congestion! The proponents admit it. "It'll bring more people into Brighton" they cry.

bus lanes should be open too on a sunday to all traffic. surely free parking will ensure a parking space is found more quickly without the queuing to take a ticket etc.. barrier will be up so it will reduce congestion, and free on street parking will help stop people turning around and looking for something cheaper, the sooner the cars can stop the less congestion and pollution. this weeks news of bus fare increases has put any cause for less traffic and pollution back years. Only free bus journeys will get me on one, not till I am 60 then.
