Our Vision is being the Community Bus Service of choice in our area.

Our Mission is providing a safe, reliable and courteous local bus, serving those rural and urban communities in our part of East Sussex not served by the commercial bus companies.

Our buses have been serving the communities of the Cuckmere Valley in beautiful East Sussex since 1976, taking people to their nearest towns for shopping, for appointments, or for pleasure. We provide transport links to many villages including Alfriston, Ripe, Waldron, East Dean and Polegate and we also operate Town Bus services in Hailsham & Seaford as well as Leisure Services through the South Downs National Park. Everyone in our organisation is a volunteer and keen to look after you - try us one day!

Our 16-seater minibuses are available for Private Hire at very competitive rates.
