Track your bus...
Go to All local bus services will track on a map using a GPS signal from the ticket machine. Most school contract buses will track too, but this can't always be guaranteed. Please remember in rural areas the signal can mean the bus doesn't track, or there may be a time lag on where the bus is showing on the map.

The above timetable is subject to change so please check this webpage for any updates. 

What's changed? 
Bus 2: Great Totham and Wickham Bishops added. 
Bus 2: Great Totham (Mill Road) added
Bus 3: Tollesbury added
Bus 3: Great Totham (Mill Road) removed
Bus 4: Bradwell and St Lawrence added
Route 95A: Morning journey from Tollesbury to serve Heybridge Basin. 
Route 95A: Lawling Avenue pupils encouraged to use route 73
Route 95A: 0755 from Heybridge Basin journey withdrawn, see above. 
Route D1: To be operated by Stephensons of Essex

Update: We ask that Tollesbury and Tolleshunt D'Arcy going to Plume Lower use route 95A, and that Tollesbury and Tolleshunt D'Arcy going to Plume Lower use Bus 3. Both buses will serve both sites, but this allows us to even distribute passengers between both buses. 

We will be reviewing the fares on route 95A and the spare seat prices on bus 2 and bus 3. Route 95A fares and termly tickets will increase, and bus 2 and bus 3 spare seat prices will decrease. The prices will reflect the distance travelled between these routes which should make our pricing structure more fair. 

Route 95A on-bus tickets
Tollesbury - Plume. Child Return £4. Child Weekly £20. 
Heybridge - Plume. Child Return £2.50. Child Weekly £10. 

Pupils from Bentalls are encouraged to board Plume Bus 3 as this is a relief bus for the 95A.
