Mike has come out in support of a student campaign for more competition amongst bus companies in Brighton & Hove.
Students from Sussex University’s Conservative Society have launched a petition that calls on the Competition Commission to change the rules governing bus service competition in order to encourage and enable smaller providers, such as the Big Lemon Bus Company, to successfully operate services. To sign the petition, please visit www.ipetitions.com/petition/buses. For more information on Big Lemon Buses, see www.thebiglemon.com.
Commenting, Mike said: “It is no secret that Brighton & Hove Buses have a monopoly in our city. I urge residents to stand up to this transport giant by supporting this campaign to help smaller providers like the Big Lemon. Predatory practices that force out competitors are damaging to everyone in the long-run. I hope that the Competition Commission will review this case.”
