South Downs Way Bus Service

Walk & Cycle offers a unique transfer service. We collect passengers, luggage and bicycles from Eastbourne and transport them back to the start of the South Downs Way in Winchester.

You book the transfers in advance. The bus departs Eastbourne at 5.00 pm and stops at Arundel train station and Winchester train station. There may be other passengers in the vehicle as the service is advertised to the general public.

Please note that if you are booking transport only, it will be provided as a bus service that is open to the general public. Departure times will be fixed and drop off points will be Arundel and Winchester train stations only.

If you need transport to other destinations or a more flexible collection time then please book one or more of our other holiday services, luggage transfers or bicycle hire for example. We can then provide transport tailored to the needs of your group.

If you would like transport only and do not wish to use our bus service then you need private vehicle hire, which we are not licensed to provide unfortunately. For journeys starting in Eastbourne the large taxi operator Sussex Cars may be able to help.

Booking Enquiry

Please note that our bus service must be booked 3 days or more in advance. The service is offered subject to availability and demand.
