Bus network review
Brighton & Hove has one of the best used bus networks in the country, with residents making more bus journeys per head of population than anywhere else outside of London. High quality, frequent and reliable buses are vital to the success of the city, helping to reduce congestion and improve air quality.
In 2018, we commissioned specialist transport consultants to look at the main causes of delays to buses and bus passengers across the city. The study was carried out with the bus operators and the council. It analysed locations where buses frequently get delayed and then impact on the reliable operation of our bus network.
The study also suggested potential improvements at some of the key delay locations identified, that the council could investigate.
These suggestions will help us:
- focus on key areas critical to the smooth running of the bus network
- begin to develop a prioritised set of targeted future improvements to speed up the millions of bus journeys made each year
