blank

A BUS company has urged people to plan trips in advance as services have to be rerouted due to the city’s Pride celebrations.

Brighton and Hove will welcome thousands of people when Pride returns to the city after a two-year hiatus.

With road closures planned across the city due to the community parade and other events, the council has urged partygoers to get around the city on foot or by public transport.

Two dedicated shuttle buses, the 500 and 600, will operate to and from Preston Park, Old Steine ​​and Brighton Pride campsite, but other services in the city will be diverted due to road closures.

Brighton and Hove Buses Managing Director Ed Wills said: “It’s fantastic that Brighton and Hove Pride is happening this year.

“The event is of tremendous importance to our community and we are excited to be doing our part to ensure people can travel safely to and from the event.

“We want everyone to have a fantastic time which is why we will be using 15 additional buses and special services taking people to and from Preston Park, Old Steine ​​and Waterhall Campsite.

“I strongly encourage people to plan their trips and allow plenty of time to get home.”

Paul Kemp, Managing Director of Brighton and Hove Pride, said: “Pride is an important event for our city with visitors from across the UK and around the world.

“We are very encouraged by the positive collaboration and support during Pride weekend and the excitement for everyone at Brighton and Hove Buses.”
