Waltham Abbey faces massive reduction in bus services
UPDATE 28/04/2018: I’ve written Cllr Ray Gooding of Essex County Council: Email to Essex County Council re. Waltham Abbey Bus Services
Limited passenger numbers and a lack of support from Essex County Council have led EOS Buses to reduce their services.
From 6th May the 66 bus service from Waltham Cross to Loughton will end at 8.15pm, losing the 8.45 and 9.15 services.
From 2nd June the 86 won’t have a Saturday service and the weekday services will no longer include Nazeing.
This is very bad news for anybody who can’t, or chooses not to, drive. It’s also bad news for motorists who already have to deal with traffic jams and a lack of parking spaces.
It is, of course, bad news for the environment and our childrens’ health too.
Essex County Council say that they are committed to supporting alternatives to car use. Hopefully they will step in and subsidise these services, and later evening services, to help reduce car use, reduce long term health care costs and support our local economy.
If you think that Essex County Council should help fund these bus services please email Cllr Ray Gooding: firstname.lastname@example.org
