      What about trades? Take their tools on the bus I guess

      Can they not take their tools to a job during the delivery time, surely just a matter of organisation., or possibly give exemption permits but be very selective on who and how many.

      Genuine question, what kind of initiative do you think is needed ? I ask as my journey to work is 4 miles. Every now and then, during a moment of madness, I consider cycling to work. Easy on the way there but almost up hill all the way home. I than come to my senses and jump in the car. It would have to be one hell of an initiative to make me switch - possibly involving something like a button ski lift to get me back up the hills.
      4 miles to work (or dropping kids off to school) in a car is exactly the journey that needs to be eradicated.
      It does the commuter, the car and the environment no favours at all.

      Only considering 2 options is part problem.
      I never ever think to use the bus for any journey, I can all but see 2 bus stops from the end of my drive, and yet never use them.
      They aren't convenient, comfortable or cheap (at least that's what I tell myself) .
      I only take the train for trips to London or Gun Wharf Quay

      The 'cycle to work' scheme is an excellent way to get bikes that are fit for purpose into the hands of those making such small journeys.
      But who the hell wants to do that if it's going to take almost as long and be 100 times more dangerous.

      My knowledge of cycling around Brighton is pretty sketchy, (I still pretty much do the same road from Ditchling to the pier and along the coast) let alone Hangleton.

      I'd hazard a guess I'd look at your route and think f*** that I'm driving.

      But if I could pick up a fit for purpose safe cycle path, not a shared space shoehorned in with fast cars, parked cars and pedestrians I'd me more inclined to get a bike that makes easy work of the hill home, knowing I'll be safe, fitter, saving money and ideally time as well.

      Hopefully all emergencies happen in the delivery time

      Reopen the railway line to Kemp town and reopen the lewes line to Uckfield and Haywards Heath to East Grinstead.

      Do you think they'll be able to get that done before the Summer season?

      Bus diagram map for Brighton, before Saturday please?

      Seriously, rearranging the bus routes is overdue, The number 2 has been going all around the houses for nearly 100 years. Takes bloody ages.

      I want disabled people to be able to travel around their city and you think I'm arguing for the sake of it. You're unbelievable.

      Public transport? What if they want to make their own way to town? Many people need their car to get around.
