BUS company Stagecoach will provide a free shuttle bus to and from Fontwell Racecourse for every race meeting this year.
The free bus service will run from Barnham Train Station, approximately every 15 minutes, so punters heading for the races can save the hassle of driving and parking.
Buses start running two hours prior to the first race and returning immediately after the last.
Simon Tramalloni, operations manager at Stagecoach, hopes the provision of a free shuttle service will encourage more people to use public transport to the events.
“We are pleased to be working in partnership with Fontwell Park Racecourse in providing free transport to each raceday,” he said.
“We hope to see many punters on the bus for a great day out at the races, and they could even have an extra bet with the money they save!”
Tracy Skinner, executive director at Fontwell Park said: “We are delighted to be working in partnership with Stagecoach by offering a free shuttle bus to the racecourse, and improving the transport facilities for racegoers attending a day out at Fontwell Park.”
Stagecoach will use fully accessible low floor buses, including onboard provision for a wheelchair.
