The hugely popular open-top bus will be returning to Thanet in May 2021!
Route 69 will be back from 1 May on weekends and bank holidays, then daily from 26 July until 5 September, running the same route as before between Ramsgate Boating Pool and Broadstairs Stone Bay.
Kids (aged up to 15) cannot travel on the top-deck without being accompanied by a responsible adult.
COVID safety on the open-top bus
It's important that we all follow the COVID safety rules when using the open-top bus. Government capacity restrictions are currently in place on all public services buses in England, including open-top services. That means we need to continue to limit the number of passengers on board and avoid sitting immediately behind or in front of another passenger (who is not in our bubble) - even on the top deck. Face coverings are also required to be worn at all times, unless exempt.
We expect this requirement to be reviewed in-line with the government roadmap for easing restrictions, but until we have confirmation, please make sure you follow the safety guidelines when travelling on the open-top bus. You can find out more on our web page here.
