In reply to the letter Travel Sickness (NCE 10 October), in Brighton we have introduced satellite 'realtime' message displays at bus stops throughout the city.
Significant investment supported by strong partnerships between key stakeholders (bus company/ local authority) has been rewarded by a 7% increase in public transport use this year.
This is contrary to the national trend.
As your correspondent highlighted in his letter, the provision of quality information gives confidence to end users.
If the experiences of Brighton are repeated any suggestions of congestion charging will be thankfully forgotten. The politicians would surely welcome that notion before local elections next year.
