Bus Service Changes from 22 September 2019

There will be changes to a number of Brighton & Hove bus routes from the start of our Winter timetable on 22 September 2019.  Once again, a number of these are the result of suggestions made by our passengers and drivers, as well as Brighton Buswatch and students.

Full timetables in our online Bus Times are available here and in the new Bus Times book.

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 January to be considered for the April Bus Times book.  Please contact us on Facebook, Twitter, by email at info@buses.co.uk or write to us at 43 Conway Street, Hove, BN3 3LT.
