It's very easy to get a bus in Brighton and its surrounding area. You just need a "seven day saver" ticket bus and you can catch the bus whenever you want without spending money. If you have this ticket , you're ready to go around Brighton!
Schedules aren't a big problem because some buses arrive at the bus stop every 6/7 minutes and others every 10/15 minutes and they go around Brighton all the day without stopping.
But what surprised most is that there's wi-fi connection on some buses: it's the first time that I've seen something like this, and it's awesome!
So I suggest you to use buses and not to worry because they're easy to catch!

Local buses are currently £1.70/£1.50/£1 a ride, £4.20 (from driver) for a one day saver (as many rides as you like), £3 in advance from shops and £2.80 from the website link below.
Trains go all over from Brighton and Hove stations.
Brighton to London Victoria (around £23)
Gatwick Aiport (around £7 quid)
and other sea-side resorts on the South Coast. (Beware, the train I just got back from Reading Berkshire, although a pleasant view incorporating castles, took forever and had no refreshments, take some sarnies and a drink).
Trains in the UK are expensive. Travel after 9.30 am and before/after rush hour for a better price.
Planes go to all over the the world from the huge nearby Gatwick airport and it's an easy train journey. Cab to airport around £35/£40 (2008). There are also airport buses from Poole Valley coach station. They go to Gatwick (I hr) and then onto Heathrow (2hrs) . These are not that much cheaper, but work out better if you have small people with you and definitely the best option for Heathrow.
Boats go to France from nearby Newhaven and apparently, you can hire boats privately from Brighton Marina.
Licenced cabs are licenced, very reliable and quick - (Hooray!)

Forget hiring a car, parking is tricky and you can easily walk, bus or cab it.

I travel alot to brighton with work, and with my experiance of transport, some firms can be a little.. unreliable. I attend meeting about 2-3 times aweek and often need transport from the station to the lanes, everytime i've used this taxi firm they've been on time, and occasionaly early awaiting my arrival! The drivers are always quite chatty and make converstaion because they want to, not because they feel they have to which I feel is an huge bonus! Their prices may be similar to other firms, but the service beats any other firm hands down!
I would happily recommend Brighton and Hove City Cabs any time, which is why i'm here giving this tip.
Their number is (01273) 205205
And I beleive that have a website, www.205205.com

Brighton is walking friendly, by the sea and around the city centre, it is not that large so it is really easy and possible to walk everywhere, sometimes someone might want to join for a short walk :)

Took one hour to get out of Brighton by car on Sunday afternoon 29 June.
As so many people have to do this, this is not such a useful tip as it may be pretty hard to avoid having to do it yourself - but I'm going by train next time!

Located at the northern tip of Queens Road, Brighton Station is a superb Victorian architectural statement in cast iron and glass. originally built in 1840 and substantially extended in the years thereafter it is a wonderful example of how practical needs can be intertwined with aesthetic values. The roof alone provides you with plenty to stare at and get diverted by should your train be delayed. if that isn't enough to take your mind off the wait then the concourse has a W.H. Smith newsagent, coffee kiosk, cake and cookie vendors and a small food branch of Marks and Spencer.
Given the shortage of parking spaces in Brighton, if you are coming into town from any distance away the train or bus is an excellent option. Regular train services run eastwards towards and beyond Hastings and Rye, westwards to Chichester, Southampton and even Bristol and Cardiff and northwards to London and beyond. For those based in London you'll find that trains run around every fifteen mins to and from Brighton, with journey times taking between an hour and ninety minutes.
Once you arrive in the city you'll find that the main town centre is due south from the station exit with the beach being no more than 20 minutes walk away. For those wanting a ride into town there is either the taxi rank or the bus station immediately adjacent to the station. Buses taking you to Churchill Square (the main covered shopping centre) include the No. 6.

After our travels around Asia for a year, we are now more willing to get the bus around the country. Especially good when it is cheap. We booked a fun fare ride for £6 each one way from London Victoria to Brighton. It seems it goes up at the weekend to £10 each one way.
Journey time 2 hours 25 minutes. 20 minute wait at Gatwick airport (felt more like 10 mins).
Book online, you can turn up on the day but you are not guaranteed these prices or a seat.
Either print of the ticket or have it text to your mobile for 50p. There is a temporary bus stop, whilst the bus station is being redeveloped.

Brighton taxi ranks are everywhere in the city. Outside oceana on west street, near the royal pavillion, near the palace pier, and off the main shopping area of the lanes near north street. If not just flag one down.

Southern railways are a good train service, with regular trains running along the south coast and up to London Victoria via Gatwick airport, East Croydon and Clapham junction. For a return from Brighton as far as Portslade, Shoreham by sea or even Worthing expect to pay as little as £4.00 return for a cheap day return ticket valid anytime after 1000 am and anytime in the weekends. It doesn't even work out expensive to get to Portsmouth or Southampton. It only takes an hour to London and about half an hour to Gatwick airport.
