Epsom Buses has been re-launched by the Mayor of Epsom & Ewell, Councillor Robert Foote. Originally launched in 1986 by Epsom Coaches, Epsom Buses pioneered the use of small buses off main roads and ensured bus travel was more convenient taking people directly to their homes. It also brought the high standards, for which Epsom Coaches are known, to the local bus network. .
Epsom Coaches has re-launched itsiconic bus brand with a smart fleet of new and refurbished buses, known as â€œSilver Serviceâ€ with a dedicated team of drivers.The services all radiate in and out of Epsom town centre, providing convenient local links to Langley Vale, Stoneleigh and West Ewell not served by other routes. Each of the buses is named after a Derby Winner, further reinforcing the Epsom links, from a company that itself has been part of Epsom since 1920.
All buses accept cash and will continue to do so after London Buses wentcash free on 6July.
Epsom Coaches Managing Director, Steve Whiteway commented, â€œI was here when we launched Epsom Buses in 1986 and well remember the impact it had then, establishing routes that are today very much part of the community. Although the tough economic climate and increasing traffic has taken its toll on the frequency of some services, our investment in this revised network along with our staff and new buses will ensure a reliable and high quality service, run for local people by local people.As our slogan suggests this is â€œYourLocal Busâ€ and we look forward to being of service to customers old and new.”
