Please continue to wear a face covering throughout your journey, unless you’re exempt.

Come back to bus, have an ice cream on us!

We are proud to be able to continue to safely serve our communities in Kent and East Sussex during these times and over the past year, we have put a range of special measures in place on our buses to protect our customers and colleagues from Covid-19.

We understand that you may have some questions about returning to our buses as the country begins to edge out of lockdown and many of us look to restart daily life.  


That's why we will be placing pop-up stalls in central town centre locations from June 24, where our colleagues will be on hand to chat with you about coming back to bus and travelling safely with us. 


We’ll even be handing out free ice cream* to welcome you back on board! 


So come along and meet our team to find out what we are doing to help you travel with confidence.  


You’ll find us at these places from 09:00 on weekdays and 10:00 on weekends:


  • High Street, Canterbury - Thursday 24 June and Sunday 4 July 
  • High Street, Ashford - Friday 25 June 
  • Biggin Street, Dover - Saturday 26 June
