Public transport

Every journey undertaken by public transport frees up space on our roads. You may even find it’s a better option. Seaford has great train links to Brighton, Lewes and Eastbourne by bus.

Below are some ways you can save money and support our public transport network.

We all know that trains can be really expensive. Hopefully in the future this will change. The best thing to do at the moment is make use of discounts and railcards available.

Even if you don’t use the train that often a railcard can pay for itself quite quickly.

There are other options such as GroupSave and Unizone (for University students).

Bus pass.

Older person's bus pass

In England you can get a bus pass for free travel when you reach the female State Pension age, whether you’re a man or a woman.

You may not have been a regular bus passenger before you retired but it’s free and you’ll be helping to reduce traffic. What’s not to like.
