A new bus service which can divert its route to collect and drop off passengers has been introduced in Essex and south Suffolk.

The Demand Responsive Transport (DaRT) buses will be operating this summer, and are modelled on providing a flexible service.

Residents must call up or email at least two hours in advance and can be picked up from their home, a current bus stop, or from an agreed landmark along the route.

A shuttle bus is being trialled between Audley End Station, Audley End House and Saffron Walden town centre each Monday during the holidays.

Service F315 will also be available from August 29, running between Halstead and Sudbury, Monday to Saturday, replacing buses 11, 12 and 13.

Another is being introduced from August 29 between Bradwell and Burnham-on-Crouch, Monday to Saturday, replacing the previous D4 service.

To book the service, call 01621 874 410 in Maldon, or 01621 874 411 for north Essex and south Suffolk.
