SAVER tickets

Prices apply from 13 April 2014.

Purchase your SAVER tickets on-line from this website for the cheapest prices available.

SAVER ticket gives you the complete freedom to travel as much as you need on all daytime Brighton & Hove bus routes as well as night routes.  

It is not valid on School Services (92B or 92C).

You can buy SAVER tickets for periods lasting for a day; 7 days; a month; three months or a year. We strongly recommend buying tickets in advance, either online on the key smartcard or from our 1 Stop Travel shop, 26 North Street, Brighton or from our office at Conway Street, Hove or try our m-ticket SAVER on your smartphone by downloading our app, see here for details.

You can also buy scratch off style SAVER tickets for 1 day, 7 days or 1 month from many shops as well as Post Offices, but these cost a little more than buying online. A full list of shops selling SAVER tickets is available click here and for Post Offices click here

SAVER tickets can also be purchased for 1 day’s travel from bus drivers on your first journey of the day. There’s a restricted CitySAVER which is valid on bus routes throughout the city within the area bounded by Steyning, Shoreham, Patcham, Lewes (Malling Down) and Seaford (Chyngton Lane) and there’s also the unrestricted Discovery ticket available from bus drivers which is valid all over our network in the same way that tickets purchased online and from shops are.

Please note bus routes 16/66, 37B, 47/57, 52, 56 and 56E are operated by other bus companies which are unable to accept the Brighton & Hove key smartcards or smart phone M-tickets, but paper SAVER tickets issued by drivers and scratch off SAVER tickets are valid for travel. 

The boundary points for CitySAVER tickets purchased from bus drivers, mean they are NOT VALID for travel on :

  • Services 12/12A/12X/13X between Seaford (Chyngton Lane) and Eastbourne
  • Services 28/29/29B/29X between Lewes (Malling Down) and Ringmer, Hailsham, Uckfield, Crowborough or Tunbridge Wells

  • Service 79 between Surrenden Road and Ditchling Beacon

Please note that SAVER tickets purchased in advance on the key smartcard remain available for use for 12 months after the purchase date and then expire. Scratch off style SAVER tickets have an expiry date on them which ends on 31 December of the latest year given on the ticket, and cannot be replaced or refunded once this expiry date has passed.
