Coronavirus - COVID19: Service information
Each step of the government roadmap out of lockdown brings us closer to getting back to the things we love.
Social distancing and face coverings are still required.
Service changes from Sunday 16th May 2021
From Sunday 16th May 2021, we are making some changes to our services across Essex.
Our Essex Airlink services X10 and X30 will be increasing back to their normal hourly frequencies and the Chelmer Valley Park and Ride site in Chelmsford will be reopening. We will also be running more buses on a Saturday evening on service 27 between Canvey and Southend, and on Sundays in Colchester on service 64.
In addition to this, a number of services will have some timing changes to improve punctuality.
We’ve got each stage of your journey covered so that you can arrive safely at your destination.

Supporting the national effort with the NHS Test & Trace App:
We would like to encourage all passengers travelling with us to download the NHS Covid-19 Track and Trace app. Anyone aged 16 or over who lives in England or Wales can use the app. The app allows you to report symptoms, order a Coronavirus test and check into venues.
How do I access them?
Both of these apps are designed to help us protect each other and reduce the spread of coronavirus.
The England and Wales NHS COVID-19 app is free to download from the App Store and Google Play.
