Students at the University of Brighton will be travelling with Worthing Coaches this academic year. The company has been selected to run a dedicated route for students.

The 44-seater Irizar i3-bodied Scania features USB chargers and free WiFi. As part of the university’s bid to reduce its impact on the environment, the bus is also Euro VI.

The bus, which is emblazoned with the university’s branding, runs between the Falmer Campus and the Old Steine in the centre of Brighton. There are services from 0750hrs to 1850hrs daily during university term time.

Barry Mullet, Assistant Director of Facilities at University of Brighton, said: “We’re thrilled to be able to offer this free bus service to our students. Reliability is a top priority for us and Worthing Coaches’ impeccable credentials in this area made the company first choice to work with on this project.”

Paul Barringer, Sales and Marketing Director of Worthing Coaches, added: “We’ve pulled out all the stops to make sure students travel in ultimate comfort and style with our dedicated University of Brighton bus.

“Whether they want to continue working on the way home or simply relax and catch up with friends on social media, they’ll be well-connected with our USB chargers and free WiFi.”
