Fares Increase on Essex County Council Bus Services from Monday 1 April 2024

From Monday 1 April 2024, the fares of those bus services operated under Essex County Council’s Gross Cost contracts, which includes the 77/77a service are increasing in line with Essex County Council Fees and Charges Policy which will be a 4.1% increase rounded to the nearest 10p. The reason for the rounding is so the fares are not sums like £3.14, which would cause more difficulty for passengers and bus drivers.

Please note that concessionary bus pass holders and Park and Ride users will not be affected by this change.
