Improvements to campus bus services from 17 September

Following discussions with Brighton & Hove Buses, a number of improvements to bus routes serving the University of Sussex campus will come into effect from Sunday 17 September.

  • 23 (Brighton Marina): an increase from two buses per hour to four during term time
  • 25/25X: more frequent buses, making 24 daytime buses per hour between Falmer and Brighton centre in term time
  • N25: an increase in frequency: up to every seven minutes until 2am.

James Brown, Transport Manager for Sussex Estates and Facilities, says: “We liaise on an ongoing basis with the local bus companies to look at ways they can improve existing services and provide new ones.

“So we’re delighted that the bus routes serving campus will be operating more frequently - and that they will better meet the needs of our students and staff.”

Other routes that serve campus include the 28, 29 and some 5B (Hollingbury) and 50U (Hollingdean) buses.

Full timetables are published online at and in the printed Bus Times publication.

Students can buy one-week, three-month and yearly tickets from One Stop Travel, North Street, Brighton; or from the Brighton & Hove Buses office at Conway Street in Hove. One-week tickets can also be purchased from the Students’ Union shop on campus.

More information about student bus travel is available from Brighton & Hove Buses.

When showing a 'student mticket', students must also show appropriate student ID to the bus driver - otherwise the full adult fare will have to be paid.

Sussex staff can obtain a 10% discount on Brighton & Hove networkSAVER bus tickets (7 day, 28 day, 90 day and annual tickets) using the key smartcard. This discount is also obtainable by registering for the easit scheme. Note that 1 day, Pay Monthly networkSAVERS and citySAVER tickets are not included.

All students and staff can travel for free by bus within the University campus.

Wonderful news for the 23, but last year the times were erratic with some 23s seeming to disappear altogether. Some cancellations made no doubt due to lack of interest.

Are there any plans to extend the use of 100% electric buses on the 25 route?
