Evening, Sunday & rural routes under threat

The Brentwood Gazette reports that Essex County Council are looking to wield their bus axe again.

This time, late evening journeys on the 73 are under threat, but all routes funded by the council will be being reviewed to see where a cut can be made. This means all evening, Sunday and rural routes in Essex are under threat.

The County Council are still consulting on what their bus priorities should be, so make sure you take part in their survey before 21st October.

The changes currently proposed for Brentwood are:
21A: Essex wants to withdraw this route leaving Brentwood with no link to Ongar after late afternoons.
73: The last bus of the evening is to be withdrawn Mon-Sats. Here's the proposed timetable for subsidised journeys on Mon-Sat evenings:
251: No more Sunday trips to Southend, as this route will be curtailed to run between Warley and Wickford only. Here's the proposed timetable:
898: It is proposed to withdraw this route from Blackmore via Doddinghurst and Brentwood to Romford.
