Bus Service Saved

 

Waltham Abbey Town Council is pleased to report this exciting news to you.

The evening bus services will be maintained in the town. .  After considerable hard work by town councillors working closely  with Essex County Council, another bus company is willing to provide an additional evening service via the commercial service 66.     (Waltham Cross/Waltham Abbey to Loughton/Debden).

This situation arose with the service 250/251 being withdrawn by the previous provider due to costs and low passenger data. It would have meant that there would have been virtually no bus services in the evenings in the town. During the consultation in June and July, the Town Council responded robustly against the proposals, as they considered it to be totally unacceptable. Since then, local councillors have been working tirelessly to work out a solution, and we are pleased to announce this massive victory.

Our work continues to protect our local services, with Town & District members investigating ways to improve services.  Our County Councillor is meeting with County officials next week to ensure the safe future of our evening bus service.
