We operate a fleet of around 260 buses across East Sussex, West Sussex and Kent. More than 14 million passenger journeys are made on our services each year. We are an award winning bus operator, committed to serving our towns and villages, and supporting their social and economic welfare. We employ more than 300 people locally who are dedicated to customer service, improving our environmental impact and making bus services accessible for all. We work with local charities and community groups. As an active partner in the towns and villages that we serve, we understand that together we help create thriving and sustainable communities.
We want to live in a world where every journey is taken care of. So we adopt a company-wide ethos where we believe in mutual respect, working together and building relationships. We believe in embracing change, responsively and proactively, and continuously strive to set new standards; taking ownership and pride in what we do.
We employ more than 300 local people - from school leavers on apprenticeships to long-serving employees who have been with the company for over 30 years. We value our people and are working hard to grow a happy work culture and environment. We are supporting and developing our people to help them fulfil their potential and enjoy their working life.
We really value those qualities in our people that help us deliver our services to the new standards we are constantly resetting. We show appreciation through company award recognition programmes, a big annual awards ceremony and industry awards. Last year, we staged a Family Fun Day extravaganza at Hickstead Showground. We look after our people with a reward package that provides a host of discounts and offers.
We invest in providing the best training and skills development programme for our people, whether a driver, engineer or customer service assistant, we tailor the training and coaching to individual needs. We mentor our people to help them fulfil their potential and create a working environment in which they can progress, nurturing talent to develop tomorrows' leaders.
