Last week for Brighton & Hove Buses’ Kids Travel Free offer 

6 months ago Wed 22nd Dec 2021

It’s the final week of Brighton & Hove Buses’ Kids Travel Free offer, where up to three children aged 16 and under pay nothing when accompanied by a fare paying adult in the weekends leading up to Christmas. 

Kelly Kilshaw from Shoreham-by-Sea and her three children have used the offer over the December weekends to go and visit their family at Whitehawk. 

“We go and visit my mum and then we go shopping,” Kelly said. “The children like getting the bus, especially in December, because they can see all the Christmas trees and fairy lights from the houses. They go on a bit of a Christmas lights search.” 

Brighton & Hove and Metrobus Managing Director Ed Wills said: “We’ve had great take up of our Kids Travel Free offer, which we do every year, and I’m so pleased it has helped make a small difference.” 

Brighton & Hove Buses are not running on Christmas Day, with services resuming on Boxing Day.   

Up to three children can travel free when accompanied by an adult across the entire bus company’s network in the Kids Travel Free offer, which is not valid on night buses. The usual ID requirements apply for those aged 14 and 15 years old.
