Summer Bus Times preview

Bus Service Changes from 23 April 2017  

Brighton & Hove Buses are pleased to announce improvements and changes to a number of bus routes from the start of our summer timetable on 23 April 2017.  Once again, a number of these are the result of suggestions made by our passengers and drivers, as well as Brighton Area Buswatch and a number of local community groups.

Full timetables are now available online at www.buses.co.uk and in the new summer Bus Times book in early April. 

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