NEW (SECONDHAND) BUSES ON THE 28 AND 29 ROUTES

 
Brighton Buswatch reports that “The existing four year old ‘Volvo Gemini’s’ now on route 1 will be refurbished and painted into a striking new colour scheme for Regency routes 28 & 29 between Brighton and Lewes, Ringmer, Uckfield and Tunbridge Wells. The superior Volvo’s will replace nine year old Scania buses which have bodywork which is prone to rattle continually on poor road surfaces.”  This will apparently happen in May.
