Brighton Coach announcement about train strike ticket prices

A MATCHDAY bus operator will increase ticket prices for matches where train strikes have been announced to allow more vehicles to be made available to fans.

Seagull Travel, which operates coaches for Albion’s home and away games, has increased capacity for its services from West and North Sussex home game locations.

They did this “in preparation for further strikes”.

But the company, which recently celebrated its 10th anniversary by providing buses for the Amex, will need to raise ticket prices to provide enough buses for games affected by future rail strikes, they said.

Currently, round-trip home coaches are charged around £9 on matchday.

Matchday Express buses, which travel to the farthest reaches of Sussex for home games, cost around £20.

The company said rail strikes usually leave tour operators little time to expand their operations.

As soon as strikes are announced, the cost of hiring buses increases immediately.

It is “in the midst of the worst bus driver crisis in the industry,” limiting the number of vehicles available for hire.

As a result, it is urging fans to “consider the prospects of further strikes” and to book before a train strike is known “until the current situation is clarified”.

A spokesman said: “In preparation for further strikes we have increased West and North Sussex capacity for home games.

“We also have a plan (not yet in place) that says we will increase the price of individual bus seats as soon as news of a strike comes out.

“This increase would allow us to source more vehicles. We could have sold out another 6 buses for the journey to Liverpool but we just couldn’t get the vehicles.

“If we were to increase the seating cost, for example by an extra £10 per seat, our options would improve.

“We are already seeing very high demand for the Carabao trip to Arsenal, which we believe is due to fears of a strike.”
