HAILSHAM passengers travelling on the Westham and Pevensey bus service to Pevensey Bay are being offered a two for the price of one ticket throughout August.
As part of an initiative between the Hailsham Bus Alliance and Westham & Pevensey Local Transport Partnership (WPLTP), two-for-one return tickets for journeys from Hailsham to Pevensey Bay will be available to book by phoning 0845 606 6951 or in person at the Town Council offices in Market Street.
The promotion has been planned for the first four Wednesdays of August. The first service already began last Wednesday, August 1.
Two passengers travelling together and booking before any journey will be eligible to travel for the price of one person (£4), the required fare being paid as cash or with a concessionary pass as passengers board the bus.
Town Cllr Barry Marlowe said: “This promotion demonstrates our strong commitment to encourage more local people to use local bus services helping to improve overall sales in the process.
Joyce Richards, a director of WPLTP, said: “Hailsham folk can enjoy family summer holiday outings to the Pevensey Bay seaside, whilst Westham & Pevensey folk can make the most of Hailsham shopping opportunities.”
Hailsham Youth Mayor Chelsie McIntosh said: “The introduction of such an excellently driven partnership is incredibly good news.”
Miss McIntosh endorsed the scheme due to its appeal to the young people of Hailsham, and added: “The offer of two tickets for the price of one for a day out to Pevensey Bay is exceptional, and would offer young people the chance to visit an area in which they may not be familiar and diversify their experiences as part of the future generation of Hailsham.”
