Welcome to southerntransit

Here at Southern Transit we are passionate about making sure every journey is a memorable and splendid trip. In today’s world, we’re all in a hurry to get from A to B, but we think you should be able to savour the journey as much as the destination.

Based near Brighton, in the beautiful Sussex countryside, we are proud to be an independent bus and coach company that offers an affordable range of iconic vehicles for private hire and group travel.

With exceptional customer service at the heart of everything we do, we’ll take the hard work out of your group travel needs and ensure you have a day to remember.

We cater for groups of all sizes and have a range of buses to suit your requirements. Whether you’re looking for an historic classic like the 1960s London Routemaster or the very latest state-of-the-art, luxurious, eco-friendly, Wi-Fi-connected double-decker – we have the vehicle for you.

Or, take a trip with us and experience the stunning scenery of the Downs Link route between Shoreham and Horsham on our exclusive Route 3 (Adur Valley Line), before stopping off for a meal or a day’s shopping.

Established in 2003, it’s safe to say we’re bus specialists with roots in London transport and the sightseeing industry, and wherever possible we want to pass on our passion for this environmentally friendly, affordable mode of transport.

“You were just brilliant. The bus looked perfect and attended was really lovely. All our guests loved the experience and I was surprised to hear that they all got a little guided tour of Brighton, which they all thoroughly enjoyed and i was actually a little jealous of :). The ticket was a lovely touch and the kids (and adults) thought it was great! - ”

Adam & KellyHeritage Bus Hire

“I travelled on it today and had a really nice trip. Even though various bits of the route are covered by other services, it is much nicer from the top of a decker. TA1 is in great condition, the driver was friendly, the ride was smooth and punctual. And you take Discovery tickets too. Thank you for a good trip, and I hope this route is successful.”
