More problems - possible closure
« on: January 10, 2018, 09:07:05 PM »
I was working in Basildon on Sunday.  I was told that Regal Busways had closed down on 31 December although I cannot find anything that supports this.

The Essex Bus update http://www.essexhighways.org/uploads/Bus_Passenger_News_December_2017.pdf indicates several of the Regal Busways services have ceased or transferred to other operators but I don't know if this is all their services.

Pretty much all of them are going, if they haven't already - another group suggested the Freeport Shuttle in Braintree will be the last route to end.

Most routes have been replaced in some way or another (with reduced provision, as ever), but one notable omission is the 1 (Canvey Island-Chelmsford), which will not continue. A sad end after that route was launched with much fanfare with three leather-seated, hi-spec Optare Tempos - of course only one of those survived.
