The network: routes, frequency, who pays

We have a fleet of 280 vehicles covering more than 10.5 million miles every year, running over 30 services. We are continuously developing the bus network: more often than not, the ideas for improvements come from staff or customers. So if you have any suggestions for service changes, do get in touch.

Brighton and Hove Buses, 2015We know that frequency is key to people using buses more, and some 85% of our customers now live close to a service that is every 10 minutes or better.

We are able to provide this high-frequency, comprehensive network because we cross-subsidise less-viable journeys and services (the less-used routes, quieter times of day, and our night-buses) from our stronger-performing routes.

Very few local services receive any form of public subsidy: the exceptions are some council-funded evening and Sunday services, and the Breeze up to the Downs service, which is part funded by the council, South Downs National Park Authority, and the National Trust.
