Trial Park & Ride

Report of the Executive Director, Economy, Environment & Culture

Decision:

1)             That Committee agrees to the use of Mill Road as a Park & Ride for a trial period between June and September 2022 to enable Brighton & Hove Bus and Coach Company to plan and progress their park and ride trial scheme.

Minutes:

87.1      The Committee considered a report of the Executive Director, Economy, Environment & Culture that provided and update on the intention of the Bus Operator (Brighton and Hove Bus and Coach Company) to trial a Park & Ride (P&R) on Mill Road from June 2022 to September 2022.

 

87.2      In response to questions from Councillor Peltzer Dunn, Andrew Strange of Brighton & Hove Bus Company clarified that the scheme would operate every 12 minutes through to midnight, 7 days a week except matchdays at the Amex Stadium. The scheme was predominately aimed at tourists and visitors from areas with no direct public transport link. Fares would be slightly more than a network ticket and would be a limited stop service from Mill Road to the city centre.

 

87.3      In response to a question from Councillor Wilkinson, Adrian Strange explained that the service would be seasonal and deploy buses that were unused during the university holiday period.

 

87.4      In response to a question from Councillor Nemeth, Adrian Strange explained that planning consent would be required for a permanent scheme should the trial be a success and discussion with the SDNPA were planned.

 

87.5      Resolved-

 

1)           That Committee agrees to the use of Mill Road as a Park & Ride for a trial period between June and September 2022 to enable Brighton & Hove Bus and Coach Company to plan and progress their park and ride trial scheme.
