Purple Festival free shuttle bus

Take a FREE ride on one of our new buses on 8th October

We'll be running two of our brand-new double-deckers during the afternoon and evening of Saturday 8th October to provide a link from the rail stations to the seafront for the Purple Festival.

There's no charge to use the fifteen-minute service so why not take a ride and try out the free 4G Wi-Fi and the USB charging points on the seat backs.

You can enjoy the free entertainment on the seafront as well!

Buses will run from Southend Victoria Station (Bus Stop VE) from 1400 hours and then at 15, 30, 45 and 00 minutes past each hour until 2145.

They will pick up in Clifftown Road (Bus Stop M) opposite Southend Central Station at 1404 hours and then at 19, 34, 49 and 04 hours past each hour until 2149.

On the seafront they will set down and pick up on Marine Parade outside Las Vegas amusements. Buses will run from there at 1410 hours and then at 25, 40, 55 and 10 minutes past each hour until 2155.
