There are now two bus companies running in the Brighton area, with a range of affordable fares and discount deals:
- The Brighton & Hove Bus and Coach Company runs services across the city, with tickets for limited services running past our Brighton campuses and a discount for NUS card holders on all services. Tickets can be bought from bus drivers, online and on mobile phone apps. NUS tickets must be bought from 1 Stop Travel on North Street or at campus shops.
Cycle lanes run between Falmer and the city centre.
Cycle lanes run from the city centre along the A270 Lewes Road to Falmer. Cycle stands monitored by CCTV are provided on each campus.
Falmer railway station is a short walk from the campus, Moulsecoomb is one stop away and Brighton mainline station three stops away.
- There are up to four trains an hour from Moulsecoomb to Falmer (four minutes' journey time), two an hour direct to Eastbourne (35 minutes' journey time) and regular direct and connecting services to Hastings (70 minutes' average journey time).
