What's been happening?
Coombe Road Area and Meadowview and Tenantry has historically been served by the 38 bus ran by Brighton and Hove buses. This service ran twice hourly up and down Coombe Road and linked the isolated hill communities to the city centre and Brighton station. In addition, the 37b, funded by Brighton and Hove through the Supported Bus Network and ran by Compass Travel, went up Bear Road hourly and linked Meadowview to Queens Park and the Bristol Estate.
Residents attended the Policy and Resources Committee of Brighton and Hove Council and presented a deputation detailing why this area needs a bus service that is regular and reliable.
Compass Travel have recently confirmed that they will continue to run the 37 bus as a commercial route and the 37b as part of the council-funded Supported Bus Network.
