Using buses to get even easier in Brighton & Hove
A public meeting to discuss improvements that will make getting on and off buses easier will be held at Hove Town Hall on Monday 13 September, from 6 to 7.30pm.
The proposals to provide better access to bus stops are part of Brighton & Hove City Council's ongoing commitment to making bus travel more accessible throughout the city.
Councillor Craig Turton, deputy chair of the environment committee, said, "We want to hear people's views about what they need to be able to use the buses more easily. Transport staff will give a short presentation on the benefits to the whole community that accessible bus stops can bring – and then it's over to the audience to give their comments on each of the sites we're hoping to work on this year."
Improvements are planned for the following bus stops:
- North Street, stop C
- Dyke Road 'Imperial Arcade' (both sides of the road)
- New Church Road, 'Hove Street' (westbound)
- Church Road, 'Hove Street' (eastbound)
- Beaconsfield Villas (bottom pair of stops)
- Old Shoreham Road Hove, 'Hove Park Tavern' (westbound)
- Stanford Avenue, 'Fiveways' (westbound)
- Whitehawk Way, 'Coolham Drive' (both sides of the road)
- Dyke Road, 'Seven Dials' (adjacent Melville Road and Co-op)
- Eastern Road 'Park Street' (both sides of the road)
- Furze Hill, at Furze Croft
The council is keen to encourage people to come along and join the debate. For more information contact Richard Johnson on 292480.
