Discount offer: Carers card holders receive student travel discount on all Keycard purchases (student fares cut standard prices by around a third).

Accessibility: Buses have space for one wheelchair and many stops in Brighton and Hove have raised kerbs to allow access. If there isn't a raised kerb, a manual ramp is available. The 'Helping Hand' scheme is a discrete way of telling the driver you need extra help. Find out more accessibility information.

How to access the offer: You'll need to apply for your Keycard by going to the Care for the Carers Head Office at Highlight House, 8 St Leonards Road, Eastbourne, BN21 3UH. You will be asked to show the Carers Card, some ID as well as provide a passport sized picture. Additionally, you will need to give us your email address as well as your current address, contact telephone number and date of birth. Following your visit you will be posted a Brighton & Hove Buses Keycard and ID card and afterwards, you'll be able to load up the Keycard online at www.smartbuses.co.uk or by visiting Brighton & Hove Buses Head Office or 1 Stop Travel.

Please note: East Sussex Carers Card Holders will not be able to apply directly to Brighton & Hove Buses for the discounted travel as East Sussex Carers Cards need to be verified by Care for the Carers first. Please therefore ensure you contact Care for the Carers before applying.
