Cuckmere Buses

Where services are not being provided on a commercial basis, Hailsham Town Council has powers to secure and subsidise them through contracts with bus operators. The Council currently subsidises Cuckmere Community Bus Ltd (a registered charity) which serves the Cuckmere Valley.

*******COVID-19 SERVICE UPDATE: Most of Cuckmere Buses have returned to operation following a temporary closing of business in late March because of the outbreak of Coronavirus. Some services remain on restricted timetables but the company aims to have all services back to near-normal over the coming months.  Owing to government guidance there is a limit to the number of passengers that can be carried on each trip so as to maintain social distancing.  Face coverings are mandatory (with certain exceptions) on public transport, and the company will provide a mask for any passengers who does not have one when boarding. 

Remember, concessionary passes are accepted on all services and there is a cashless ticket facility if required.  To check the current status of services please visit or call 01323-870920.We hope you will avail yourself of these bus services which are designed for the local communities and are support by your Town/Parish Council.*******
