Coronavirus update: It is passengers' choice whether to wear a mask, or not. However, safety enhancements such as keeping windows open, and enhanced cleaning; have been maintained.
Bus services have stabilised, so timetables only rarely change.

Due to the national shortage of bus drivers, many operators are having difficulties recruiting enough new drivers, and so unfortunately this may cause occasional missed journeys, although the situation is improving.

All our information is thought to be correct to 27th February 2023.

Brighton & Hove Bus Co. : No fresh news is good news.
