Southend's hop-on/hop-off service returns

Go-Ahead London's Southend hop-on/hop-off commercial service is back this year, offering hourly services over a circular route in an open top bus.

After the late May 2018 Bank Holiday the service then returns from Saturday 9 June and runs daily until Saturday 1 September. This means it will serve Southend for approximately six weeks longer than it did last year, with a higher frequency during the six week summer holiday, where it will run every 30 minutes*, as opposed to the usual hourly timetable.

Thomas Drake, from Go-Ahead London's commercial department and the driving force behind the service says: "We are very pleased Route 68 will again take to the streets of Southend, with an enhanced frequency during the summer break and an longer overall operating period. 

“This service has been really well received and we hope our regulars, plus some new users, take advantage of our competitive fares and improved timetable."

*with the exception of the late August Bank Holiday Monday (27 August) when the route will revert to hourly for reliability reasons.
