In 2006 the Cuckmere Community Bus was awarded the Queen's Award for Voluntary Services - the highest award that can be bestowed on a group of volunteers and equivalent to an MBE for individuals.
The award was given in recognition of the fact that services are operated entirely by volunteers for the benefit of the local community, residents and visitors.
In May 2014 Cuckmere Community Bus was awarded the Community Transport Association's (CTA) prestigious Quality Mark. This award is based on a variety of standards which confirm that Cuckmere Buses is operating within the relevant legislation and working in accordance with best practice within the voluntary sector.
In 2000 the Cuckmere Community Bus won the first ever "Buses for Pleasure" award in the Bus Industry Awards presentation for its services aimed at improving access to the countryside and local attractions for people, without the need to travel by car.
The Cuckmere Valley Ramblerbus won first prize in the 1998 Wealden District Council Environmental Awards. This was awarded under the Council's Green Scheme, which aimed to reduce the number of vehicles entering the Cuckmere Valley. The Cuckmere Valley Ramblerbus first operated in April 1998.
