New late evening Waltham Cross – Loughton via Waltham Abbey and Upshire, returning via Debden service proposed. Help us show that it will be used.
Back in summer 2017 Essex County Council ceased subsising the late evening 250 and 251 bus services which covered Waltham Cross to Loughton via Waltham Abbey town centre and Upshire. EOS London extended their 66 service to cover the early evening but our research has demonstrated that there is a need for late night services along this route. Following a meeting between ourselves, Essex County Council and Bindmans solictors last week, the county council has agreed to consider subsidising two new late evening services, running from Waltham Cross at about 10.00pm and 11.00pm.
NB – the current proposal is for two return services leaving Waltham Cross at 10.15 and 11.15, returning from Loughton via Debden approximately 30 minutes later.
At present the last bus runs from Waltham Cross at 9.15pm. The later services would help people who work late in London and our local hospitality and shift-based businesses, while also enabling people to make more use of our area’s diverse restaurants, pubs and cultural facilities.
Before the county council makes a decision we need to demonstrate that there is a need for these services.
If these services were available would you be likely to use them?
