The wearing of face coverings is required for anyone aged 11 or over on all our buses including school buses from Tuesday 30th November.

Reduced service on select routes from 15-Nov due to driver shortage at Sible Hedingham Depot

15th Nov onwards

Due to bus drivers leaving our company to go and work in other essential services (including lorry and van driving) we are currently short of people at our Sible Hedingham depot. Therefore we will be cancelling some route 88 & 89 journeys on weekdays and weekends from Monday 15th November. This decision is designed to ensure that we are able to operate all other journeys in the timetable without some of the last minute cancellations we have been forced to make.

Reduced service on select routes from 13/10 due to driver shortage at Sudbury Depot

13th Oct onwards

Due to bus drivers leaving our company to go and work in other essential services (including lorry and van driving) we are currently short of people at our Sudbury depot. Therefore we will be cancelling some journeys on weekdays and weekends from Wednesday 13th October. This decision is designed to ensure that we are able to operate all other journeys in the timetable without some of the last minute cancellations we have been forced to make.

Reduced service on select routes from 04-Sep due to driver shortage at Clacton Depot

4th Sep onwards

We are very sorry but we are currently failing to run all our bus services because we have had a lot of bus drivers leave us at short notice.

To make planning your journeys easier, we have cancelled some journeys.

Panther Travel buses will be used on some journeys on route 3 until further notice but don’t worry your Hedingham tickets will be sold and accepted on these buses.

We are making every effort to restore these journeys as soon as possible and apologise for the disruption caused.
