Unlike in London, cash is accepted (and welcomed!) on all Compass services. In Surrey, West Sussex and East Sussex single, day return and weekly tickets are available. Weekly tickets are available on routes operating at least daily Monday to Friday and cost four times the daily return fare.
A different fares structure applies on routes operated within the Brighton area with a range of “Saver” tickets in addition to single fares. Brighton and Hove Saver Tickets are both issued and accepted on Brighton Routes 16, 16A, 37, 37B, 47, 56, 56E, 57 & 66, these are also accepted on services operated by Brighton & Hove Buses, Metrobus and The Big Lemon within the Brighton and Hove City Council area.
