Kids have an Offa-ly good time on the bus

21 Feb 2018


Children at King Offa Primary Academy in Bexhill found out what it’s like to be a bus driver last week. The year R pupils got to explore one of Stagecoach’s brand new ‘Wave’ buses when it took time off service to visit their school.


Bus driver Phil Laker showed the kids around his bus and talked to them about what it was like to be bus driver. He also handed out goodie bags for the children to take home.


The ‘Wave’ decorated double decker is part of a fleet of 12 buses costing £2.5 million used on the coastal route 99 between Hastings, Bexhill and Eastbourne. On the outside the buses sport a ‘Wave’ livery featuring a montage inspired by the seaside route.


Deputy Headteacher, Ryan Laker said, “They absolutely loved the new bus and asked lots of questions about a bus driver’s day, the routes they drive and the people they see.”
