Labour Party Press Release
Brighton and Hove buses should offer passengers free bus travel for a day on December 7th to tie in with a day of free parking in the city, Labour’s Nancy Platts has said.
Drivers in Brighton will be able to come into the town centre and park for free on Small Business Saturday when charges are waived at five car parks in a bid to encourage more town centre shopping.
Nancy Platts, the parliamentary candidate for Brighton Kemptown & Peacehaven, said:
“Many people who don’t have a car are also on low incomes so I am calling on Brighton and Hove Buses to give them an early Christmas present.
“Free parking is on offer in other parts of the South East but bus users deserve a helping hand as well. We need as many people as possible to come into the City centre and do their Christmas shopping locally and this could help boost numbers.”
