Answer for 167 bus route truncation (2)

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Essex County Council wrote formally to advise Transport for London (TfL) of the council's decision to withdraw funding from TfL procured bus services running in Essex. A copy of this letter will be sent to you.

The withdrawal of funding, and the subsequent consultation on the changes to services running into Epping, were the subject of regular telephone conversations between TfL and the council. There were also working meetings in May and November 2016, which were not minuted.
