University of Brighton Big Lemon

University of Brighton Big Lemon


The Big Lemon operates a shuttle bus service for University of Brighton students and staff linking the Campuses of Falmer, Varley Park, Moulsecoomb and Grand Parade.

The service runs Monday to Friday (except Bank Holidays) during University Term Time (26 September – 16 December 2016; 9 January – 31 March, 24 April – 9 June 2017) The service is free for students and staff but passengers must show a valid University of Brighton ID card in order to travel.

Please note there are only two buses per hour on this service as that is as far as the budget stretches, and although we try our very best to stay on time the realities of Brighton’s traffic means that sometimes the bus gets held up. The best thing is to think of this as a nice (free!) addition to the rest of the transport mix and if for whatever reason the bus doesn’t appear when it should the best thing is simply to get a different bus rather than risk being late for University.
