48 late night bus services have been organised for people going to the West Show, North Show and The Vale Earth Fair later this month.
CT Plus, the Health Improvement Commission’s Substance Use department, and Traffic and Highways have worked together to organise tickets and travel for late night buses for those three events.
Travel on the additional late-night buses can only be done with an advance ticket, bought in-person from the Town Terminus Shop, or by calling the shop on 01481 700456 if you have mobility issues and are unable to get there.
This is being done in order to guarantee people's seats in advance, make boarding of buses easier and safer for the event organisers, and save people with mobility difficulties or hidden disabilities from having to queue up for places.
“We know this creates confidence for our members and all those who want to know their place on the bus is arranged and they will be able to get home safely," said Guernsey Disability Alliance Partnership Director Karen Blanchford.
"Catching a bus with a night late queue can be stressful, particularly for those with hidden disabilities or those using access aids. The advance ticket sales actually let the bus driver know if there will be a wheelchair user on the bus.
"With one place for a wheelchair on each bus this also lets the bus company help plan for any other wheelchair users. The aim here is that two wheelchair users won’t be queuing for the same bus."
Pictured: The tickets and routes are now available to be purchased in person from the Town Terminus Shop. The shop opening hours are from 08:00 to 18:00 Monday to Saturday and from 10:00 – 16:00 on Sundays.
Tickets are now on offer for the 48 additional bus services. No more than four tickets for each event can be bought by any one individual.
