LETTER: Upgrade on the buses needed

If you catch the bus you may have noticed the brand new real-time bus stops; they are all over the place, not just in Eastbourne, but it is only here that they don’t actually give any information except ‘they are on test,’ just like the old ones! Well, if you travel to say Lewes or Uckfield, even in Seaside they do work but only with Brighton and Hove buses. Stagecoach, which is our main bus service (in Eastbourne), seems unperturbed by this situation; one can only hope that when the new shopping centre and Devonshire Park are up and running they will have upgraded their buses as well. If it is Eastbourne Borough Council’s intention to encourage more visitors to shop here then they should be asking why many locals and visitors can’t get a bus after 6pm and only hourly on Sundays – or not at all in some cases.
