Lord Brett McLean said: " What better way to celebrate Pride than have a special liveried bus travelling around East Sussex for all to see.

“Passengers can get on the bus and "Ride With Pride" as we celebrate and recognise the individual efforts of those in the past and those currently involved with campaigning for equal rights.”

The bus can be seen regularly travelling around Hastings, Bexhill and Eastbourne on the Wave #99 service which now links up with Stagecoach's brand new Eastbourne to Brighton service #701 which launched 2 weeks ago.

Passengers can currently travel from Hastings to Brighton for £8.00 return by using the £2.00 single capped fare scheme, Hastings to Eastbourne £2.00, then Eastbourne to Brighton for £2.00 and then £2.00 single capped fares for their return journeys.
