Travel in Brighton
||Brighton is a compact
city, which means most tourist attractions are easy to get to
on foot, but there is also a good choice of public transport for those
who want to rest their weary legs.
Bus travel in Brighton and nearby Hove is deemed good value with a
standard single fare within the city centre of just over £1.
There are plenty of designated bus lanes helping to speed services
past other traffic, while buses run every few minutes on main routes
in and out of the city centre.
Add to this an array of clean and comfortable vehicles and plenty
of bus stops in the city centre and you’ve got all the right
ingredients for a good service.
The majority of the city’s bus services are run by Brighton
& Hove Bus & Coach Company Ltd. For more information,
telephone 01273 886222 or 01273 886200.
If you prefer a door-to-door service then why not opt to travel by
taxi, as there are hundreds of hackney cabs operating in Brighton
that you can flag down on the street. The main taxi ranks in the city
centre are located in East Street [map],
Queen's Square [map]
and at Hove Town Hall [map].
There are also plenty of private hire car companies, where you can
book taxis in advance.
For those who fancy combining exercise with getting around, why not
hop on your bike and make the most of the network of cycle lanes
in and around the city centre. You can also find cycle routes
along the seafront, at Victoria Gardens [map]
and Lewes Road [map].
There are bike racks situated conveniently throughout the city centre
and it is possible to hire cycles and scooters all year round - please
