Consultation on Service 71C – Pilgrims Hatch - Brentwood operated by Stephensons.

Closed 14 Feb 2021

Opened 25 Jan 2021


Consultation on Service 71C – Pilgrims Hatch - Brentwood operated by Stephensons.

Service 71C operates peak timed journeys only Monday to Fridays with financial support from developer funding as part of a S106 agreement.  The funding from the S106 agreement will cease to support this service from 26th March 2021 and passenger usage has been insufficient for the service to continue commercially. (Figures based on pre covid passenger usage)

ECC is therefore considering withdrawing this service with effect from March 26th 2021 and is carrying out a public consultation regarding this proposal for 3 weeks between 25th January 2021 and 14th February 2021
