The horse bus standing at the Brighton Terminus, the south end of Preston Road adjoining the Stanford Arms. Period 1895-1897. The bus ran only to Preston Village, the terminus there being just beyond South Road. It held four aside (said to be a tight fit) and one male adult on each side of the driver. The fare was one penny each way. Inside passengers paid as they entered by putting a penny into the driver’s hat, which he put within reach through a trap door in the roof just behind his seat. No tickets were issued and there was no internal lighting.
