Stagecoach has announced which bus services will be available on Boxing Day in Eastbourne.

The bus operator says timetables have been published for the popular ‘Loop’ and 1/1A bus routes that will run throughout the day.

Those wanting to join the revels at the Bandstand or indulge in the Boxing Day sales can get around town on a special half hourly 1/1A service.

The bus route runs from Willingdon Trees and Hamlands via Old Town or the District General Hospital into town and then out via Seaside to Langney shops and Shinewater.

There will also be a special ‘Loop’ service running every hour, bringing people from Hampden Park and Langney Point into town.

Joanne Howe, operations director of Stagecoach South East said, “We know that many people want to go shopping, visit friends and relatives or need to get to work on Boxing Day.

“Last year more than 2,000 people travelled by bus in Eastbourne on the day. Not everyone wants to get the car out, and travelling by bus is a great opportunity to sit and have a chat with friends and family.”

Festive bus times and Boxing Day timetables are available to view online at www.stagecoachbus.com or by picking up a leaflet on the bus.
