£600,000 Investment for Improved Woodingdean Bus service

3rd November 2015

Brighton & Hove Buses have announced a £600,000 investment to improve the reliability and frequency of route number 2 and 22, making it more convenient than ever to travel from Woodingdean to Brighton and Hove.

The money will be spent on two additional buses that will be added to service 22, improving frequency to every 15 minutes.

An additional bus will also be added to service 2, giving more running time and maintaining the existing 20 peak-time frequency more reliably.

Local Residents' Calls Answered

Andrew Boag, chair of Brighton Area Bus watch, which represents local bus-users, said: “We are pleased that there is now a significant improvement to both the 2 and 22 services.

“The more frequent service on the 22 coupled with improved reliability should make it much more attractive to bus users in Woodingdean. The bus company has honoured the commitment made to local residents earlier in the year when the service was poor and generating a lot of complaints. This is an excellent outcome”.

The changes come after a public consultation in March. The consultation showed residents did not want any route changes to be implemented but instead wanted a significant improvement in service reliability.

Patrick Warner, the bus company’s business development manager, said: “We paid particular attention to how our controllers respond when our buses experience multiple instances of severe congestion and roadworks throughout the city and, as a result, it is extremely rare now that a bus will ever be turned short or fail to complete its journey into Woodingdean.”
