Brief overview of local bus services
Brighton, Shoreham etc:
The Brighton area has one of the best bus services in the south-east (with almost all local services listed in Brighton & Hove Bus Company's Comprehensive timetable).
The main bus company is the Brighton & Hove Bus Company, which runs frequent bus services to most parts of the city (including 10 minute services towards Lewes and Eastbourne). There is a fairly comprehensive evening & Sunday service, including several night services (particularly at weekends). Stagecoach runs the 10 minute service 700, towards Worthing, and beyond; and the hourly service 17 to Horsham. Compass Bus has taken over a number of supported bus services, within the area. The Big Lemon runs the service 52 and now runs the service 44 commercially, which has been extended from the Universities to Saltdean. Metrobus and SussexBus.com run services to/from mid Sussex and Crawley/East Grinstead (where services have recently been greatly enhanced). Brighton & Hove local bus map : : Shoreham/Southwick map
Lewes, Newhaven, Seaford:
In addtion to Brighton & Hove Bus Company's main services, there are a number of less frequent services (mostly run on a tendered basis), run by- Compass Travel, Cuckmere Community bus, and Renown Coaches/Travel. Many are detailed in the comprehensive Brighton & Hove Time bus timetable.
Worthing, Lancing, Littlehampton:
Most services are run by Stagecoach, based in Worthing- including the major Brighton-Worthing-Arundel-Chichester-Portsmouth service 700, and the 10 minute 'Pulse' service. However, while there are many Sunday bus services; apart from the service 700, most bus services terminate before 8.30pm, in the evening. Compass Travel run several bus services (including the new service 7), with Metrobus mostly running the Worthing-Horsham-Crawley service.
