Using public transport is another mode of planet friendly transport. The more people take the buses, the fewer cars on the roads. Bus lanes which run across parts of the city also ensure you don't get stuck in nasty traffic jams.
Brighton & Hove
The Big Lemon Bus converts used cooking oil to biodiesel for it's fuel use, which the University of Brighton catering outlets (among others around the city) supply. More cooking oil for the buses, means less cooking oil to landfill, making it that little bit more planet friendly. For timetables and information, go to The Big Lemon's website.
Brighton and Hove buses run a bit more often, that little bit farther, ideal if you live in Hove or are in a rush to get to lectures. See Brighton and Hove's website for more details. Cheaper bus tickets can be bought from any Student Union shop or in the 1 Stop Travel Shop in Old Steine.
There is also a 'Moulsecoomb-Falmer' shuttle bus that does the round trip between Moulsecoomb campus and Falmer campus. All parking in Watts north car park has been reserved for a park and ride scheme while Varley Halls is under construction and you need to display a valid park and ride permit (which can be obtained from the on-site Premises Office).
All staff and students can use the shuttle bus for free - it rides from 0730 to 1900 during term time only. It continually shuttles back and forth so the duration and departures depend on traffic.
There are regular buses between Eastbourne and Brighton, the 12, 12A and 13. Travel time is about 1h30 mins. See the Brighton and Hove Bus company website for more information.
If you're already in Eastbourne you can catch the number 3 bus every 20 minutes from the Terminus Road bus stop outside Eastbourne train station to Darley Road and Hillbrow/Welkin sites.
See the Stagecoach website for more information.
Everything between Hastings train station, university campus, the centre and the beach are within walking and cycling distances.
