Brighton and Hove Buses has made changes to many of its services this autumn, from wholesale revision of routes to timetable tweaks.
Among the biggest changes are to routes serving the Hanover and Queen’s Park area of Brighton. The 18 will now run in both directions between Brighton Station and Queens Park via St James’s Street/Edward Street every 15 minutes.
Alternate daytime journeys on Mondays to Saturdays will operate via Seven Dials and Western Road, with the rest operating via Buckingham Road and Regent Hill.
The new 20 route has been scrapped, the 21 extended to Hove Town Hall via Furze Hill as the 21A and the 22 now extended to Brighton Station to maintain a link with Elm Grove. You can see the full changes here.
These changes were made following a review of the new route after two months, when passengers complained about having to jump between bus stops to get the first bus and slow journeys from Hanover to the city centre.
The 96 school bus from Patcham to Hove Park School is now formally withdrawn following the city council’s decision to stop the subsidy.
However, Brighton Kemptown MP Simon Kirby is unhappy that the frequency of the 48 bus from Bevendean to Brighton Station has not been improved.
He said: “This is an important route for the residents of Lower Bevendean to get to and from the centre of Brighton. An improved service would allow residents of Lower Bevendean the freedom to be able to travel at times that are more convenient to them.”
