The Brighton and Hove Chamber of Commerce is holding an event to explore the future of transport and what it means for business in light of major developments.
The debate – aimed at a business audience – is one of a series of events organised by the Chamber.
A panel of experts will address some of the big questions about transport in Brighton and Hove and will set out their views on where we are going.
The Chamber said: “In 1840 Brighton’s 50,000-strong population was served by public transport in the form of horse-drawn buses and the railway line to London.
“Since then, our population has continued to grow, business has continued to grow and the transport infrastructure has had to keep up.
“We’ve seen trams and tuk-tuks come and go and the Volk’s electric railway line (the oldest of its kind in the world) maintain its genteel presence on the seafront – but what lies ahead?
“Mobile phone technology, GPS and the internet have transformed how we access and use public transport.
“What new technologies can we look forward to seeing in the city?
“How can we be sure that existing or future transport infrastructure will support the growing economy and business sector?”
Brighton and Hove Buses managing director Martin Harris and David Innes, commercial director at Govia Thameslink Railway, are two of the experts who will tackle the questions.
They are also expected to take questions from the floor along with Mark Prior, head of transport at Brighton and Hove City Council, and Nick Hibberd, acting exectutive director for Economy, Environment and Culture.
They will be taking part in the debate at the Clarendon Centre, in New England Street, Brighton, from 4pm to 6pm on Wednesday 21 September.
The Chamber added: “Our panellists will attempt to address some of these questions. Afterwards, there’ll be a Q&A with the panel.
“You’ll also have the chance to share your thoughts and ideas about the future of transport in the city and what it means for Brighton businesses.”
