Better bus links for visitors

Visitors coming to Brighton & Hove for a night out can take advantage of a new bus service into the city from this week.

Brighton and Hove City Council has been keen to encourage people out of their cars and on to the bus. This doesn't just apply to residents but to visitors as well.

Businesses are also keen to encourage visitors to stay longer and enjoy the evening facilities that Brighton has to offer. The beauty of the new bus service is that people can now stay and have a few drinks relaxed in the knowledge that there is a late bus to take them home.

The Coastliner 700 buses, operated by Stagecoach, will now run later into the evening Monday to Saturday, providing a half-hourly service until around 11.30pm. These will link the city centre with central Hove (via Western Road ), Grand Avenue, Kingsway, Shoreham, South Lancing, central Worthing and West Worthing ( Mill Road ).

In addition a new nightbus service, the N700, will run on Thursday, Friday & Saturday nights. This new route will link Brighton with Shoreham, South Lancing, Worthing , Goring and Durrington every hour, until approximately 3.30am.

The N700 links the city centre with central Hove (via Western Road ), Hove Street, Kingsway, Shoreham, South Lancing, central Worthing, West Worthing , Durrington, Tarring and Broadwater.

Councillor Geoffrey Theobald , cabinet member for environment, said: “The bus operators are very supportive of our night-time economy and this new service will provide more choice for both residents and those coming into the city from the West Sussex coast.”

The new timetable for the Coastliner 700 can be found at or call Brighton & Hove City Council’s public transport team on (01273) 292480.
