Changes to the summer 'Breeze' bus service

The ‘Breeze up to the Downs’ buses are getting ready for summer with longer services running seven days a week.

The 77 bus service between Brighton Pier and Devil’s Dyke is now running seven days a week throughout the summer and will run later, with the last bus coming back from Devil’s Dyke at 8.35pm, so that people can enjoy a walk and a drink amidst stunning downland scenery in the beautiful light of a summer’s evening.   

People can also breeze up to Stanmer Park and Ditchling Beacon on the 78 and 79 buses every Saturday and Sunday throughout the year.

A special ‘Breeze Return’ fare of £4.50 is available and up to two children per adult can travel for free. There’s also a two for one offer for rail ticket holders when you show a valid rail ticket to Brighton to the driver on a 77, 78 or 79 bus and get two Breeze return tickets for the price of one (or one third off if travelling solo).

The ‘Breeze up to the Downs’ services are supported by Brighton & Hove City Council, The National Trust and the South Downs National Park Authority.
