Bus times are changing in Southend - from 9th August 2015

22/07/15

Back to updates

We will be making changes to the times of buses in the Southend, Rayleigh, Rochford, Castle Point and Basildon area from 9th August.

These are chiefly timing alterations to help improve reliability where buses are regularly experiencing delays and existing frequencies will be maintained.

We will also be extending Service 1 on Sundays to run from Rayleigh through to Shoeburynes, giving an extra half-hourly service to Shoeburyness, Thorpe Bay, Bournes Green and Southchurch.

Our two shoppers' buses the 6A and 18, will no longer run as insufficient people have been using these services to cover the cost of proviving them and we cannot continue to run at a loss .

However, Stephenson's will be partly replacing the 5A with a new service.

Full details of the changes are shown below. The service headings link to the new timetables and updated timetable leaflets will be available from the Travel Shop in Southend Travel Centre, from other outlets or by calling 0344 800 4411..
