Free shuttle bus every 20 minutes to Disability Pride this Sunday (14 July)
7 months ago
We have partnered with Community Transport to run a free shuttle bus every 20 minutes from Brighton Station to Disability Pride at Hove Lawns this Sunday (14 July).
We’ll also offer free travel to companions of disabled concessionary card holders, including on Metrobus services 270 and 271. All you need to do is show the driver your concession card and indicate who’s travelling with you.
Disability Pride founder Jenny Skelton said: “We would like to thank Brighton & Hove Buses for their help and support to make Disability Pride an accessible festival for all.
“Thank you to all their lovely staff, including their Managing Director, Martin Harris, who has supported us from the very beginning; as well as their Accessibility and Community Manager, Victoria Garcia MBE, who is also a valued member of the Disability Pride Committee.”
Martin said: “We’re pleased and honoured to support such an important and positive community event and to make it as easy as possible for everybody to get there and celebrate together. What a great example of the diversity and inclusivity of this city and the people who live in it.”
The free shuttle bus will start from 9.30am at Brighton Station and the last bus leaves Hove Lawns at 7.35pm. We recommend customers return on earlier journeys to ensure travel.
You can also catch the number 6 bus - which is more frequent - between Brighton Station and Disability Pride.
People with a Plus Companion (+C) on their disabled concessionary card will be entitled to have a second companion travel free with them for the day.
