Bus Service Changes from 17 September 2017  

Brighton & Hove Buses are pleased to announce improvements and changes to a number of bus routes from the start of our autumn timetable on 17 September 2017.  Once again, a number of these are the result of suggestions made by our passengers and drivers, as well as Brighton Area Buswatch and a number of local community groups.

Full timetables will be published online at www.buses.co.uk and in the new autumn Bus Times book in early September. 

We are always pleased to receive suggestions for improvements but as timetables have to be finalised some time in advance we would need to receive these by the end of November to be considered for the April 2018 Bus Times book.  Please contact us by email at info@buses.co.uk or write to us at 43 Conway Street, Hove, BN3 3LT.
