Welcome to Stephensons…

From 8th March 2021, Stephensons are pleased to announce that we will be returning to a full pre-covid service across all of our routes.

It is compulsory to wear a facemask at all times on our buses (unless you have an exemption), and social distancing rules apply.

Locally owned, locally managed, and proudly-independent, we can trace our roots back to 1972. We’ve expanded considerably, of course, since our early days with just one coach, but our ethos remains the same. We provide good-value, friendly and reliable local bus and school services across Essex and West Suffolk, offering valuable local links essential to economic prosperity and social well-being, and employing local teams of drivers, engineers and other staff.  

We are immensely proud to have been awarded the accolade of Top Independent Operator at the UK Bus Awards 2017 – the judges noted that “Stephensons is a good example of an operator getting the basics right and providing an extremely good service for its customers”.

Our website provides information about our routes, our history and for those who would like to join our friendly team, information on careers with Stephensons.
