We wish all our customers a
Very Merry Christmas
and a Happy New Year

New Year's Day Service
In the absence of any Stagecoach bus services we have a special New Year's Day Bus (Number 50) running between Hailsham & Langney, via Polegate & Eastbourne, so if you simply want to take advantage of the after Christmas Sales, or attend the Concert at the Bandstand we have it covered!

Merry Christmas from Cuckmere Buses

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.
