Simon said: “It was great to meet with Mr Harris to be able to put forward in person the concerns that residents raise with me on a regular basis surrounding bus services in Brighton Kemptown and Peacehaven.”
Amongst the issues raised by the Member of Parliament were concerns surrounding the future of the 27 bus service, the poor level of service received by residents of Woodingdean, and problems experienced with the key cards.
Simon said: “I was delighted to get confirmation from the Chief Executive that there will be no cuts to the 27 bus service, which will be a great relief for the people who use this service.”
Simon, who surveyed thousands of residents in Woodingdean for their views on local bus services added: “I was also pleased to receive an assurance that the company will look closely at the possibility of improving services for Woodingdean. I know from talking to local residents the genuine and legitimate concerns with the current situation.”
