The South Downs National Park finest cultural and historic locations have been featured on a stunning new bus livery.

Stagecoach this week launched a new bus livery depicting some of the most iconic and picturesque locations along the popular route 60 that runs between Chichester, West Dean, Singleton and Midhurst.
On Monday 1 August Stagecoach and the South Downs National Park Authority launched two of the new look buses at a special ceremony at the South Downs Visitor Centre in Midhurst.

Speaking at the launch, Stagecoach Commercial Director Mark Turner said; "The South Downs National Park offers some magnificent and breathtaking views. We have a great network of routes running across the park and our popular route 60 provides a superb link from the coast to Midhurst where further connections are available to other places of interest within the park. Working in partnership with the South Downs National Park Authority we have designed a new livery that resonates with the area it serves and promotes the bus as the best way to experience the landscapes and attractions found along the route".

The South Downs has so much to offer and our network of bus routes makes exploring the magnificent area by bus so simple.

Trevor Beattie, Chief Executive of the South Downs National Park Authority said;
“The route 60’s new livery captures some of the beautiful countryside and heritage attractions here in the South Downs. As a National Park Authority we are committed to encouraging more people to travel sustainably around the National Park and buses are definitely a stress-free, greener way to have a family outing. The whole family can relax and enjoy the stunning scenery from the top of a double decker”.

Families joined the fun at the launch, where children were delighted to have their faces painted, have a go at badge making and enjoy the talents of magician and balloon modeller 'The Amazing Mister Tall'.
