Local Bus Service Consultation
This consultation, which closes on Wednesday 28th September 2016, is part of the County Council’s review of 70 services where the current contract ends I n 2017. The services are grouped together in areas, so it is easy to see whether your service is included.
The role of ECC is to decide, where commercial operators do not provide a service, whether one is needed and, if necessary, to provide it. To help make their decisions ECC looks at factors including usage, economy and cost. ECC is looking at options to reduce the cost, while maintaining key services, including reduced frequencies, hours of operation, route changes.
To take part in this Local Bus Service Consultation, please click here to go to ECC's consultation website. Paper copies of the consultation document can be seen at all Essex Libraries or by calling 0345 7430430.
