With effect from January 2022, Stephensons will be taking over the school services operated by New Horizon Travel upon the well-earned retirement of the owners. The same friendly drivers will continue with us, operating from the same depot at Frating, and initially the buses will be largely the same too.
Students who receive travel funded by Essex County Council need do nothing. The lists have been issued to us, and for the January term, New Horizon have issued passes on our behalf. These will say ‘New Horizon’ but be accepted for travel.
If you purchase a half-termly or termly pass for student travel, you should for now contact New Horizon on 01206 255255 in the usual way, as the tickets are not set up yet on our on-line purchasing system. They will issue tickets for the spring term which will be accepted by us.
Timetables for the current New Horizon services C1, C2, C4, C7, C8, C9, L1 and M1 will be added to this website shortly, but in the meantime can be found at www.horizonbus.co.uk
