Bus services 301, 316/318, 319/320/321 and 59/590 in Uttlesford

05 Jun 24

Essex County Council would like to apologise for the distress caused to residents by the disappointing actions of the bus operator. We fully understand people’s concern and have therefore worked with other operators to put as many journeys as possible in place for Monday. These will target school and peak journeys which are the most used, in the first instance.

Update: Following the emergency arrangements we have had in place for services: 301 and 316/318, please be aware that from Monday 10 June 2024 onwards, passengers will now be charged fares to travel.

From Wednesday 08 May, all of the affected services will be operating to a full timetable by either A2B Travel Group or Stephensons of Essex. Travel will be free until registrations are completed – we will advise when this is the case. We would like to thank these operators for their rapid response and support.
