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
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.
& Ride Consultation - proposal to drop bus passes
For details of this proposal
and an opportunity to contribute to the consultation, visit Essex County

proposals, please click
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timetables that clutter up homes and quickly go out-of-date".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.
