"Many of the people who were on the bus will have seen the incident taking place and I am keen to speak to them about what they saw and heard.
"Please contact us with any information you might have. No matter how insignificant you might think it is, it could be important to the investigation."
She added: "Racist incidents of any size or nature will not be tolerated in Sussex and we will investigate each and every one fully."
