Compass Travel Re-awarded services 37 & 37B in Brighton

Posted on Posted in News

Compass Travel is pleased to announce that they are being awarded a new contract with Brighton & Hove City Council to continue to operate routes 37 & 37B in Brighton for a further three years.

These routes together provide two buses an hour across the city between Meadowview and Bristol Estate with an additional short service giving three buses an hour from Meadowview for much of the day. The service will continue to operate seven days a week; on Sundays and Public Holidays the buses will all run as route 37 providing an hourly service during the day.

There will be an improvement to the evening service with a bus every 40 minutes all evening (Mon-Sat) from both Meadowview and Bristol Estate. The Sunday evening service will continue to operate every 75 minutes.

Compass Travel will be investing in four brand new buses to provide a high standard of service on this route.  The buses will have their own distinctive route branding and will be fitted with WiFi, USB sockets and ‘next stop’ announcements. All will be fitted with the latest Euro 6 low emission engines which meet all clean air requirements.

Compass Travel Managing Director, Chris Chatfield, said, “We are very pleased that we can continue to provide this service in Brighton and can now invest in new buses with the latest low emission engines to help improve air quality in Brighton and provide a high standard of service.”

Councillor Gill Mitchell, chair of the city’s environment, transport and sustainability committee, said: “We are pleased to be supporting buses that connect residents from outlying areas to the rest of the city. Making the city accessible to residents is a priority and this contract will provide a better evening service as well as regular daytime services with new, low emission buses.”

The current 37 & 37B daytime timetable will continue with the new improved 37 evening timetable starting on Monday 23rd April 2018. Full details will shortly be available on the Compass Travel website. www.compass-travel.co.uk  All Brighton Keycards and M-tickets will continue to be accepted on this route.
