Brighton & Hove Buses are marking Disabled Access Day celebrations from 10-12 March by offering companions of Disabled Concessionary Card Holders free bus travel.
Accessibility and Communities Officer Victoria Garcia said: “We are delighted to support Disabled Access Day by helping disabled people and their companions to get out and about together.
“We are strong advocates of helping people to lead happy and active lives, and what better occasion to promote this message than on Disabled Access Day.”
Paul Ralph, Founder of Disabled Access Day, said: “I welcome the support of Brighton & Hove Buses for Disabled Access Day 2017. The chance to try something new can have a sustaining and meaningful effect as new opportunities are unveiled.
“For me and many others, bus travel provides that important link between places, communities and people. Accessible bus services have the potential to make an enormous difference to people’s lives.”
* To claim the free travel, companions simply need to board the bus with their Disabled Concessionary Card Holder friend and make it clear to the driver that they are travelling together. Drivers will permit all Disabled Concessionary Card Holders a plus-one to travel throughout the three days of the Disabled Access Day celebration from 10-12 March 2017. The normal terms and conditions of Disabled Concessionary passes will apply.
