New bus services for University of Brighton

Today sees the launch of new services for the University of Brighton to replace bus service 44 which was withdrawn at Easter.

The University of Brighton has very ambitious targets to cut its carbon footprint in half in the five years from 2009/10, and has put in place a Carbon Management Plan to achieve this. The provision of inter-campus transport running on a sustainable fuel is part of this plan, and has allowed the university to reduce car travel between the campuses and dramatically reduce the use of the university’s diesel minibuses.

Neil Morgan, Director of Operations at The Big Lemon, said “I love what they’re doing at the University of Brighton with their very ambitious carbon reduction target and we’re committed to helping them achieve that. With larger buses on the service this term we hope to avoid the capacity issues that have affected this service in the past and continue to provide students and staff with the best service we possibly can.”

There are two services, UB1 and UB2. UB1 links the campuses at Falmer, Varley Park and Moulsecoomb with the Grand Parade campus and the city centre. UB2 is a non-stop shuttle service between Moulsecoomb, Varley Park and Falmer.

The service runs Monday – Friday during University of Brighton term-time (28 April – 13 June 2014) The service is free to University of Brighton students and staff but passengers must show a valid University of Brighton ID card in order to travel.
