Free ice cream for bus passengers in Eastbourne and Hastings

A bus company in Eastbourne and Hastings is welcoming customers back with a free ice cream.

Stagecoach South East will have a pop-up stall in the two sites starting later this week.

Staff will be on hand to chat to visitors about returning to buses as covid restrictions are lifted and people move back to public transport.

A spokesperson for Stagecoach said, “Enhanced safety measures have been introduced to ensure passengers can travel with confidence – including deep cleaning and keeping windows open to improve ventilation. Passengers are also being encouraged to wear face coverings unless exempt, and use contactless payment methods when possible.”
