The Santa Bus Is Coming To Town

Brighton & Hove Buses are very pleased to be able to support The Argus Appeal and The Martlets this year again by supporting the Santa Bus.

The Santa Bus will be visiting many areas across the city over eighteen dates between 23 November and 18 December spreading joy and the Christmas spirit to the residents and visitors of Brighton & Hove.

The Argus Appeal and The Martlets are amazing charities supporting and helping a lot of local organisations and local people, so we are very pleased to be able to offer our full support to this.

Don't forget you can now track exactly where the Santa Bus is with our online tracking system. Once the Santa Bus is on its way you will be able to see exactly where it is each night on the interactive map below.

We will be visiting many areas on the dates below - Please click each link to see the maps of the routes for that day.

The Santa bus will depart from our depot in Hove between 5pm and 5:15pm and then travel to each day's start point. Generally the bus operates from around 5.45pm until about 8.30pm on each day.

Please note: Every effort will be made to keep to our schedule. However, in the event of adverse weather conditions this may not be possible.
