The city of Brighton and Hove is once again hosting the only Disability Pride in England on 14 July. New York and Italy will also be hosting their own Disability Pride events on the same day.
The event, founded by Jenny Skelton, will bring together organisations and residents from across the city to celebrate and raise awareness.
We are really pleased to provide free travel on all Brighton & Hove services for any companion travelling with a Disabled Concessionary Card Holder. This means the card holder and companion can enjoy the celebratory day together.
Free travel will also be included on the Metrobus services 270, 271, 272 and 273 to Brighton.
We are also very pleased to be partnering with Brighton & Hove Community Transport and provide a shuttle service operating between Brighton Station, Imperial Arcade and the Disability Pride park.
The companion needs to board the bus with their Disabled Concessionary Card Holder friend and make it clear to the driver that they are travelling with the card holder. The driver will permit all Disabled Concessionary Card holders a plus one to travel with throughout the whole day on 14 July.
You are still entitled to your normal free plus one but on Saturday 14 July you will be able to have a second companion travelling free with you.
Please be advised this offer does not include the older person's bus pass.
The normal terms and conditions of your Disabled Concessionary pass will still apply. Please do check with your local council before travelling if you are unaware of the travelling restrictions or call us on 01273 886200 if you have any queries at all.
This offer only applies for all Brighton & Hove Buses and the 270, 271, 272 and 273 services on Metrobus. Please be advised that no other Metrobus services will apply for this offer.
This offer also only applies on 14 July only.
Every 20 minutes starting at 9.30am shuttle buses will operate between Brighton Station and Disability Pride park. Shuttle buses will also be operating return journeys to Brighton Station throughout the day. The last bus leaves the park at 7.35pm. We highly recommend customers return on earlier journeys to enable travel. The timetable for the shuttles can be found here.
A much higher frequency service will operate from Brighton Station via the 6 service. These buses are every10 minutes and are large double deck buses. Although this service doesn't operate directly to the park customers can alight at Norfolk Square.
All Brighton & Hove services operatring via Western Road will allow customers access to the Disability Pride park via the Norfolk Square stop. For all timetable information, click here.
Remember all Disabled Concessionary Card holders are allowed a plus one travelling with them free. For ticket prices for any extra customers, please click here.
