Brighton’s Big Lemon Getting Bigger!
If you’ve not seen The Big Lemon’s yellow buses in and around Brighton yet, then you surely will soon! The local sustainable transport company recently won a bid for various bus routes within Brighton and Hove that were previously tendered by the council. This means that you’ll be seeing the big yellow buses as they serve local residents along the 52, 16, 47, 56, 57, and 66 routes.
This move can be seen as a vote of confidence in the company who now are able to expand upon their environmentally friendly and passenger-centred service through the guaranteed stream of income provided by their 4 year contract.
The Big Lemon state that “we are naturally keen to ensure we extend our fleet of electric buses. Not only is this the right thing to do for the environment, our first two solar powered buses are now out on Route 52, and proving hugely popular with passengers. They are a great advert for bus travel generally. They will be joined in due course by three brand new electric buses, funding for which is partly coming from the Department for Transport.”
Anyone looking to get involved with The Big Lemon is in luck! The company is now hiring PCV bus drivers for an immediate start, an opportunity to work for a transport company that “has a reputation for a friendly personal service” and that always “look for the most cheerful friendly drivers to drive our buses!”. If you think that this opportunity suits you then get in contact and join this growing sustainable transport team.
For Managing Director Norman Baker “There is no doubt that the future is bright, the future is Lemon”
