Getting Around in Essex Bus Strategy

The Authority prioritises local bus services according to the Getting Around in Essex Strategy. You can find out the information below, including the Local Bus Services Priority Policy 2015-2020, the Bus Strategy and the Strategy Summary.

If you have any questions or are unsure about how the policy might affect your local bus service, you should first check our Supported Bus Services page to ensure that your bus service is operated under contract to Essex County Council. You can also find full information about how we prioritise services in the Priority Policy below.  If you are still unclear, you can contact us by emailing
