Brentwood Bus services - Temporary timetables. Essex County Council have withdrawn the early bus pass facility in agreement with the bus companies. Bus passes will start at 9am from 1st September 2020.
First buses state: "On our buses we will be operating at a reduced capacity with around 1 in 4 seats being available.
It is therefore likely that that you will begin to see ‘Bus Full’ signs as some services reach their revised capacity more quickly."
NIBS and Stephensons are also following distancing guidelines.
