Community deals

At Brighton & Hove Buses we are proud to provide award winning bus travel, with over 90 routes across our city by the sea. We have some truly fantastic community deals, and we want everyone to know about them and take advantage of them.

These deals include:

  • Annual Pass - adult
  • Annual Pass - young person 
  • Family Offers 
  • Carers, Compass and I-Go card discounts.

To help all of our customers take advantage of the best deals, we've partnered with Wave Community Bank to offer an annual ticket loan that spreads the payments over a year and offers an extra 20% discount.

Wave Community Bank is a not-for-profit savings and loans co-operative, offering cost effective and flexible loans to meet the needs of its members.

Both the 12-month networkSAVER (valid on all B&H buses including Night buses) and 12-month citySAVER  (valid on all B&H buses in the area except Night buses) are available on this scheme. If you use the bus regularly, then our Annual Pass provides the best value for your bus travel.

Young people can also get a 10% discount on their annual ticket with a loan through Wave Community Bank

To take advantage of this scheme, all you need to do is get a free busID card and become a Wave Community Bank young saver. Adults can become members themselves and open an account for their child online. 

You can also spread the cost monthly by applying for a loan, which are only issued to parents or carers to spread the cost. Wave Community Bank does not issue loans to under 18's.

We have some great deals for families that include the busID discounts for children, money off school travel, discounts for brothers and sisters with our Sibling Savers and family day tickets. Additionally, our child singles, returns and period tickets offer great savings on the equivalent adult price, but if you are paying for a whole family, we can offer just a little bit more too.

For parents buying more than one 90-day or 12-month busID city or networkSAVER on key cards, we offer a sibling discount for children living at the same address. The first busID is charged at normal price and any additional children will receive discounted tickets. Tickets can be purchased in person at the Brighton Travel Shop on North Street in Brighton or our Travel Desk at 43 Conway Street in Hove. If you are unable to visit us in person, please contact our customer service team for help administering this discount in a different way.
