FOLLOWING repeated calls from the MP, and concerned local residents, Brighton and Hove Buses recently announced that they will be looking into reforming the current bus service that serves Woodingdean, and would be consulting local residents about their opinions and about how to make improvements.

This public consultation has started, and all local residents should be receiving a survey from the Bus Company in the post. In order for the bus service serving Woodingdean to be improved in the way residents would like, Mr Kirby says it is vital that all concerned residents take the time to share their views, and provide their suggestions for improvements.

He said: “I have long been calling for improvements to the bus service in Woodingdean, as I know that this is something that affects many of my constituents on a daily basis.

“Over the next few days residents in Woodingdean will have a chance to share their views and voice their concerns, and I would encourage all of them to take the time to do so. It is vital that Brighton and Hove Buses are made aware of the strength of feeling about the quality of the service to this important area.

“I hope that following this consultation, we will see some fresh thinking on the Woodingdean bus routes, and that we can finally see some improvements to both regularity and reliability!”
