Buses have sloping floors to ensure spillages don't pool. We've taken out the old floor and created a frame for a new, flat floor, creating a beautiful, spacious area upstairs

Where We Are Now

(Updated 27th July 2016)

Since the beginning we’ve been searching for a gorgeous little package of countryside where the YesBus can live, as the hub for a quiet site where people can escape from the city, relax and learn in the peace of the country, and start to create their next steps.

As of July 2016 we feel we’ve found a great site for the YesBus in East Sussex, and negotiations are underway for the site to host both the YesBus and Yestival.

Led by Chris Barnes with regular help from different members of the Tribe, the YesBus is now totally stripped and ready for a re-build. We’ve flattened the floor out, cleaned the built-up grime from years of passenger-carrying, designed a renewable energy system and a layout for both floors, and begun work on sourcing sponsors for most of the gear we need.

It’s fair to say, we’re exactly where we want to be just two months after buying the bus.
