Message from the Managing Director
Welcome to First Bus Essex and our new look website.
We are proud to serve one of the most unique parts of the country with an unrivalled service focusing on getting people moving in and around the County.
We have the best of both worlds in Essex, from vibrant town and city life, to peaceful, quaint villages all offering our customers a unique experience in their own specific ways.
Our network of services allows us to cater our timetables and fares to suit all needs. So whether you’re coming to Essex for a day’s shopping, visiting Colchester’s famous heritage sites or simply spending a day at the seafront in Southend-On-Sea, Essex really does have it all.
We work closely with local councils, bus user groups, charities and individuals to make sure we are meeting their requirements, whilst also providing great value for money and an environmentally friendly alternative to taking the car.
Recently, we’ve invested in our network to ensure we are offering you the best service we can. This includes the roll out of 33 new Streetlite Micro Hybrid buses all complete with Wifi, leather seats and CCTV – ensuring your journey is safe and comfortable. The £5.2m investment is great news for our customers and underlines our continuing determination to provide an even better bus service in the Essex area.
Combine this with the opening of our new state of the art Quayside bus depot in Colchester as part of a £3.5m investment, reiterates our commitment to delivering the service our customers expect.
We love to hear your feedback, suggestions and comments on all aspects of our service. You can contact us on any of our Social media channels, such as Twitter or Facebook or by contacting our customer service team who will be more than happy to help.
The new look and feel of the website allows us to offer you more information from timetables, fares, ticket booking, events, attractions and much more.
We hope you enjoy travelling on our buses, and we look forward to welcoming you on board soon.
