A petition calling on Brighton & Hove Buses to reinstate late night services from the city to Lewes is gathering support.

More than 190 people have signed the petition, which asks the company to bring back the Brighton to Uckfield N29 service calling at Lewes on Thursday and Friday nights.

The petition states: “We the undersigned call upon Brighton & Hove buses to reinstate the Brighton to Uckfield N29 service calling at Lewes on Thursday and Friday nights.

“We would also ask that the last 28/29 service from Brighton on weekdays reverts to the previous later time of 11:45pm, so that it can be used by those working in and enjoying the night time economy in Brighton.

“These cuts have hit disabled people and hospitality workers particularly hard as the only viable way of returning home at night, and have a detrimental effect to the whole community served by these routes.

“It has become both unaffordable for some, and very environmentally unsound for others, to make these late night journeys by private car or taxi.”
