Some of you have said that you like our lunch club, but sometimes don’t always like to be out all day. For this reason we introduced – once a month from the East side and West side – an afternoon tea trip. This will be a local destination where you can enjoy a pot of tea and teacake or a coffee and cake. We will pick you up between 12:00 and 13:00. You will have a chance to catch up with friends and make some new. This is a service for people who find it difficult or impossible to use the normal bus service, including wheelchair users. You can take a carer or essential companion with you.
Our trips are run to different destinations each month. To receive any update about our special journeys visit our website or please ask for our monthly newsletter by post (we ask for a small annual contribution of £6 in order to cover postage costs). You can also join our free electronic mailing list (click here) in order to receive our newsletter by e-mail.
Pick up times and fares
Pick up times will be between 12:00 and 13:00, and you will return home from mid to late afternoon. The driver will try to tailor the trip to suit everyone. Please be aware that trips may be cancelled or curtailed if insufficient bookings are received. Extras (as lunches and entrance fees) are not included in the transport fare. The return fare is usually £6, but it could change according to the destination: please check always the timetable.
Pick up areas and timetable
We have split our City into 2 pick up areas, calling them West and East. West encompasses everywhere from Portslade to London Road. East encompasses everywhere from London Road to Saltdean.
