We would like to welcome you all to the OFFICIAL WEB PAGE for the 27th Annual Hastings Bus Rally! This page will be updated with any relevant information, documents or updates about this year’s upcoming Bus Rally event.

Hastings Trolleybus Restoration Group’s Annual Bus Rally event is traditionally held on the third Sunday in May each year and admission is free for all bus and coach exhibitors, and visitors.

Free Bus Rides: For the first time at Hastings Bus Rally, we hope to run a free special rally service “route 33” around Hastings on the day, from the Stade along Hastings seafront via the Station to Glyne Gap and back. Each round trip is approx. 45 mins total. If you are unfamiliar with the area we can happily assist with directions for the route in advance or on the day upon request. If you’d like to offer your bus for these rides, please fill in the section about rides below so we can accommodate your requirements on the day and timetable the journeys as best as we can to help you to enjoy your day too. If you change your mind about giving rides, you can contact us or may be able to choose on the day to run rides and double-up with another bus, but your bus may not be listed.
