updated 20 May




At present there seem to be two unofficial groups: Dengie Bus Users Group and Dengie Hundred Bus Users Group ~ neither of them is an official organ of DHBUG committee.

BUT: we'd love to have a committee member with a remit for social media, especially since we want to increase contact with youngsters.

Could this be you? Do let us know!




Temporary Changes to 31B/31X route


Owing to bridge works, Mundon Road is closed through Mundon village until approximately September 23 April 2019. Services 31, 31B, 31C, 31X and 33 operated by First Essex Buses are therefore unable to serve Mundon village and will use Fambridge Road instead.


Fambridge Road is itself also currently affected by roadworks, but access for the diverted bus services is currently being maintained in both directions.


Bus travellers to and from Mundon village should follow advice from from Essex County Council and their contractors - or contact Arrow Taxis on 01621 855111 to enquire about free minibus shuttles.

Goodbye to paper!


First Bus says it will stop printing "thousands of leaflets and timetables that clutter up homes and quickly go out-of-date". The future focus will be on digital communication channels such as the First Bus App, First Essex website, and @FirstEssex. This will "not only help us save on waste (not just paper, but ink, plastics and power!), printing costs, but also help towards improving the environment!"


For customers that still want a paper timetable, the company says it has reformatted its files to make them easier to print at home, in travel centres, or at an Essex library (charges may apply).


Essex County Council will continue to post timetable information at certain bus stops and shelters, but watch out for new display technology which is bound to come in due course to a bus route near you.
