The travel plans have been finalised ahead of the rearranged game.

Brighton & Hove Albion can confirm that a number of travel contingency plans have been made ahead of the rearranged home match with Cardiff City on Tuesday 24th January, kick-off 7.45pm.

EFL title sponsor, Sky Bet, have kindly agreed to sponsor our contingency travel, following their goodwill gesture of free travel to Cardiff City fans after the original game was postponed.
Further industrial action means that no trains will be operating.
The club will also publish updated information if and when it becomes available.

The club has been advised that no trains will be in operation on the night due to industrial action.

Contingency Shuttle Services

The club are operating shuttle services to and from Lewes station and Brighton city centre.
Lewes Station - Buses will be in operation from 5pm, with free parking at the station car park for Albion fans. This will be available on a first-come basis, and all cars must be parked in an official bay.

These can be booked in advance at for £12, or can be secured on the day of the game for £15, subject to availability.

Drop Offs & Pick-Ups 

Please note there will be no pick-ups or drop-offs along Village Way, due to the large volume of buses and coaches.
Therefore the club will be opening car park 5 (within Car Park C) at Sussex University by the sports hall, to enable fans to be dropped off and picked up before and after the match.
Please note that all vehicles entering Sussex University must enter via Stanmer Park, as there will be no entry at Falmer or Knights Gate.
Please note that wherever possible, all fans are advised to get to the stadium as early as possible regardless of how they are travelling.
Fans choosing to use our car parks are asked to be patient, with delays of up to an hour possible after the match.
