Community Buses


CTLA (Community Transport for the Lewes Area) runs Dial a Ride Community Bus services which can be used by anyone unable to easily access public transport. This could be due to unsuitable scheduled times, mobility issues, additional need requirements, location or other reasons. All you need to do is register with CTLA (registration is free) and book your trip (subject to availability) up to the day before travel. For more information see http://www.ctla.org.uk/dial-a-ride/ or 01273 517332


In addition to this, the Four Towns Dial a Ride service operates 8.30am to 5.30pm, Monday to Friday, excluding Bank Holidays and covers Newhaven, Piddinghoe Village, Denton, The Mount, South Heighton, Peacehaven, Telscombe Cliffs, Seaford and the East Saltdean area. The service is jointly funded by Newhaven, Peacehaven, Seaford and Telscombe Town Councils and can be used for any purpose – to go shopping, visit friends, cafes, local attractions and much more.

The Sunday and Bank Holiday 145 bus service has been running since April 2018. It runs around the town at 90 minute intervals, to the Valley estate, Denton, South Heighton and the area of the town west of the river and south of the A259. The Monday to Saturday 145 and 123 services run by Compass Travel run two hourly.
