We have been in the public transport business since running horse buses in the 1880s and we now have one of the most modern fleets of state-of-the-art vehicles. Most of our 260 buses come equipped with easy access low floors so that buggies and wheelchairs are welcome aboard. We also have 4 luxury coaches available for private hire to meet any requirements.
Brighton & Hove has been a subsidiary of the Go-Ahead Group plc since 1993. The Go-Ahead philosophy is to run its transport companies as autonomous businesses in tune with the local market. At Brighton & Hove we have successfully grown the market for local bus travel by an average 5% each year since 1993, something which is unique in the bus industry.
Our buses run on an intensive network of local bus routes in and around Brighton and Hove from Steyning and Shoreham through to Newhaven as well as longer distance routes to Eastbourne, Lewes, Ringmer and Tunbridge Wells. Since 2001 a flat rate fare has operated across the area from Shoreham in the west, Patcham and Falmer in the north and Newhaven in the east, which together with a range of day SAVER tickets, and longer duration options, has been successful at making paying for bus travel simpler. We also offer excellent deals to meet the needs of young people, students and commuters.
We operate a fleet of around 265 buses across East Sussex, West Sussex and Kent - more than 50 million passenger journeys are made on our services each year. We employ more than 1,100 people locally who are dedicated to driving our buses, customer service, improving our environmental impact and making bus services accessible for all.
We are an award winning bus operator, committed to serving our towns and villages, and supporting their social and economic welfare. We work with local charities and community groups. As an active partner in the towns and villages that we serve, we understand that together we help create thriving and sustainable communities.
