Easylink Shopping Service

Brighton & Hove Community Transport

Our Easylink Shopping Service serves Brighton and Hove from Portslade to Saltdean, taking passengers to their nearest supermarket.

Easylink is a door to door transport service for people that find it difficult or impossible to use the normal bus service, including wheelchair users.

Most Easylink services are run by Community Transport in partnership with Brighton & Hove City Council.

Some feedback from our valued customers about our Easylink service:

“I have had the ability to visit a supermarket once a week – a great help and the drivers are very good. I would not go out at all without the bus.”

“I think the services you provide are wonderful and the drivers are so helpful and friendly. Thank you all in the office as well.”

“I’d like to thank all the drivers for their assistance in helping us with the shopping. Also when I collapsed in ASDA last week I had to go A&E – they made sure I was okay and phoned contacts etc. Much appreciated.”

How Easylink works

The buses run Monday to Friday, excluding Bank Holidays. The price for a return journey is £6 if you pay in advance (Block booking required, e.g 4 trips for the month) , otherwise you can pay the same day to the driver £8.  Our Easylink buses serve all parts of Brighton and Hove from Portslade to West Saltdean.

  1. The driver will collect you from your front door or as near to it as possible, you will not need to wait at a bus stop.
  2. We will take you to a pre-arranged local supermarket or shopping centre.
  3. You will have about an hour and a half to complete your shopping.
  4. The driver will meet you at the arranged time outside the supermarket or shopping centre and carry your shopping back to your front door.

The buses travel in the morning, picking people up between 10am and 11am depending where you are on the route. You need to be ready and wait for the driver to phone you 5 or 10 minutes before arrival so you have time to prepare for departure.

All of our minibuses have a passenger lift or low level floor, so they are ideal for people who cannot manage steps or who travel in a wheelchair. Every driver has been trained to help passengers on and off the bus and to make sure the journey is as smooth and comfortable as possible. There is room on the bus to take a zimmer frame, walker or shopping trolley with you.

  • Carers and essential companions

A carer or an essential companion can help and assist you coming with you on the bus. He/she will pay a discounted fare.

  • Wheelchairs

All Easylink minibuses are wheelchair accessible. They will have a ramp or lift to access the bus, and we safely secure you and your wheelchair into the bus.
