The Big Lemon operates three Shuttle Bus Services on behalf of Legal & General to help staff members get to work. Following a period of suspension following the Coronavirus, all three services are now in full operation as normal as from 1 November 2021. A polite reminder that staff passes need to be shown in order to board the vehicles.
For the West Service there is no longer any need to book; simply turn up, show your pass and hop on. We will keep this under review and if necessary bring the booking system back into use to ensure no one is left behind.
West Route serving Lancing, Shoreham, Southwick and Portslade:
Brighton & Hove Station shuttle:
Legal & General has negotiated a staff discount for their staff on all Big Lemon bus services which is 50% of the adult single fare. This discount is to enable staff to travel in easily and cheaply from other parts of the city to connect with the Legal & General staff shuttle from Brighton Station; however the discount applies 24/7 so you can also use it for travel in and out of the city any day of the week, for any purpose.
