As part of its travel season, ‘Are we there yet? Imagining travel in Lewes 2030’, Lewes Climate Hub invited Mark Evans of CTLA to talk about the future of buses in the town and beyond, looking at issues such the health of public transport post-Covid, the role of community transport to support wellbeing and social inclusion, and the best incentives to get more people using the bus.
Juliet Oxborrow, director at Lewes Climate Hub, said: “it was great having Mark to give his perspective on the future of buses for rural towns like Lewes. We loved his insight into what we need to do as communities not only to protect the bus services we already have but to boost their growth as a critical solution to climate change.”
