This will take place from Monday 5 December until the end of January.

Changes to Thameslink and Southern train timetables

A number of changes to train timetables affecting Brighton and nearby areas are planned for December, including Southern and Thameslink services, and trains via Gatwick Airport.

Full timetables will be available from Monday 5 December. See more information.

BTN Bikeshare will be suspended in December

Due to essential maintenance and planned relaunch, the Brighton & Hove BTN bike share scheme has been suspended until 2023. Bikes will begin to be removed from service from Monday 19 December and close for hires by 31 December.

We currently have two BTN Bikeshare hubs on campus outside Bramber House and the Sport Centre, which will be impacted.
