There is still time to have your say on bus services.

In December, Essex County Council launched a consultation to find out how important evening and Sunday local bus services are.

With low passenger numbers on some services, the council is looking at how to support those services in the future.

The consultation has reached its seventh week - and there are six weeks left.

County Hall spokesman Ray Gooding said: “We are getting a steady stream of responses to the consultation but would always encourage more.

“We know buses are important to many people. If you use these services and feel the proposals would affect you, please make sure you have taken part.”

Around 85 per cent of the bus network in Essex is run commercially, including most daytime and peak period services in and between towns. Those services are not part of the consultation.

The remaining 15 per cent of services are not commercially viable and are subsidised by the county council.

Those services mainly operate in rural areas and at less popular times for travel.

Buses operating after 10pm on weekdays and 11pm on Saturdays are being reviewed, along with Sunday services after 7pm.
