Service 90: We are sorry but due to over running road works at the junction of Acacia Avenue we will be unable to serve bus stops along Fambridge Road, Washington Road, Dorset Road and Acacia Avenue until further notice. Regrettably, we will have to divert our buses between Maldon High Street and Maldon Morrisons via Spittal Road and the town by-pass. We have no control over these circumstances. Again, please accept our apologies to you all.

Please see this document from Essex County Council which explains the fare structure and policy changes that affect routes to Uttlesford Schools, S.W.C.H.S, and JFAN



The direct debit scheme we implemented last year to spread the cost of annual passes proved successful and popular.

For this reason, we have FROZEN ANNUAL TICKET PRICES**, they remain the same as 2016/17.

Term passes and daily cash fares, however, will see an annual increase.

Passes for the academic year 2017/18 will become available from the 01st August 2017


To take advantage of the Direct Debit scheme you need to book your ticket by 15th August at the very latest, the first payment will be due on 01st September. Sorry, this is the last date as we need to provide you with mandatory notice of the first collection.

If you are an existing customer simply add any reserved tickets^^ if you have a new starter that person can be added as an additional ticket in your existing account.

Please retain your existing ScholarSmart card, we will not issue another one for next year, they will be topped up.

Thank you in advance for your support of our services,


** Sorry, this does not include closed door services to Great Baddow High or Uttlesford services, 414, 417/8/9, 438, 441,444, 446, or VL5/6 which were subsided in 2016/17. They will, however, stay as the previous correspondence from E.C.C during August 2016. Zone A £875, Zone B £975, Local Zone £775

^^ Reserved tickets will be held until 07th August, after that date they may be removed by us, please book early to avoid any disappointment.
