BttP

Bus to the Pub

The Sussex Bus to the Pub group (BttP) has been running since May 2009 and now attracts participants from many areas of our fine county, so if you too would enjoy visiting different pubs with fine ales and informal convivial company without the constraints of the car, then BttP may just appeal! Itineraries and the number of pubs visited vary but often it is possible for participants to dip in or out of a trip to suit. Often there is a short paved or metalled road walk from the nearest bus stop to the pub. If it is more than an half mile then we will show an approximate distance and if it is across footpaths which could be muddy or uneven, then you will also see a walking boot symbol.

With so many good pubs struggling to survive in the current economic climate and County Council budget cuts threatening the subsidised bus services that serve many rural communities, join us in ‘supporting them’.
