Bus Network Review

As part of a Countywide review of the Essex bus network, we would like to get your views on how the local bus network could be improved.

An online public survey has been launched to get the view of bus users and non-users on the bus network and we would appreciate your views. We are most interested in responses which relate to the districts in which the responder travels most often by bus or (if not) where the person travels most often within the country.
