Brighton & Hove Buses are opening nominations for the naming of vehicles to be delivered in the New Year. The nominations stage will close on Tuesday 6 January, followed by votes from the public.

The naming of Brighton & Hove buses after notable people with a connection to the area was first introduced in 1999. It has become a popular feature within the local community.

The company regularly receives suggestions for bus names and felt that, this year, the public should decide.
