A bus firm in Sussex has announced extra early morning services for hospital workers dealing with the coronavirus outbreak.
The move follows concern that health service workers, particularly in London, have been packed onto trains and tube carriages following service cuts.
On Monday, Brighton & Hove Buses announce that it had changed its timetables ‘to better reflect customer demand’. It said most of its routes will operate a Saturday service.
The company has now announced that it will operate 'an enhanced Sunday service' between Monday 30 March and Saturday 4 April with earlier journeys on most routes, particularly for key workers going to the Royal Sussex County Hospital.
Managing director Martin Harris said: ‘We added early morning journeys after NHS staff told us their needs.
‘Please keep on giving us feedback so we can plan our services and get key workers to their jobs comfortably and safely.’
Routes N5 & N14 will operate to the Monday to Saturday timetable.
On Sunday 5 April, a normal Sunday service will be in operation.
Routes 13X, 21E, 25X, 50U, 55, 59, 59A, 60, 77, 78, 79, 84, N12, N21, N29 and school day only services will not run throughout this period.
