A much quicker connection from the Gatwick South Terminal to a new local transport hub has been completed by the airport.
This follows a complaint to Business Travel News and passed on to CEO Stuart Wingate.
Improvements include two new lifts from the southbound road-level bus stops on the A23 into the South Terminal – and Gatwick’s train station – for people travelling with luggage, parents with pushchairs and passengers with reduced mobility.
Further improvements have been made to the bus stop areas on both the northbound and southbound A23, including pedestrian and wheelchair accessible routes, new seating and improved lighting and signage in and out of the terminal. Help points have also been installed with the live information screens also updated.
The new infrastructure improves an important transport hub for local passengers who arrive by bus and for workers employed at the airport. More than 650 bus departures currently operate from the hub, each week including high frequency, 24hr services connecting the airport to Horley, Redhill and Horsham, with other services linking to East Grinstead and Reigate.
More than 30% of airport staff who live locally take the bus to work. The improved access will also benefit 1m regular commuters who live locally and use Gatwick’s train station every year to get to work.
