Buses: We maintain a close interest in bus local services. In the past we have resolved problems. Complaints are now rare. SSB liaises with South Hams District Council and the bus company to maintain the stock of timetables in the Toll House – please telephone 72867 if you notice they have run out.
Bicycle Racks: Now in place at Sanderspool Cross,village centre, and in the Old School carpark. We have been involved in securing these – they need to be seen to be used.
Project Bike Bank: This aims to help promote sustainable transport in and around South Brent by providing the community with a free lease of a bike, along with a support package to help them on the road. go to Project Bike Bank for details and updates.
The SSB ‘Guide to Local Transport’ poster: is displayed around the village, making it easier for residents to reduce their car mileage.
