Regal Bus Service for Rawreth Will Keep Going … For Now….

According to the Echo, the no. 3 bus service that serves Rawreth will keep going for a bit longer:

A BUS service enabling people to get to the Asda store in Rayleigh has now been extended until April 4.

However, the long-term future of the No 3 bus, which links Southend and Chelmsford, could still be under threat because of problems negotiating funding for concessionary fares with Essex County Council.

The route is operated by Regal Busways, who stepped in last December to prevent the service from being lost when the former operator ceased trading.

The Echo concentrates more on the ‘serving Asda’ aspect than the ‘saving Rawreth’ aspect….
