Route H1 proposed to be withdrawn.
« on: September 22, 2010, 12:13:08 PM »
Some of you may remember Imperial Buses withdrawing the H1 (Loughton-Harlow) in December 2009 (which ran hourly on Mon-Fri, and 4 return journeys on Saturdays). Well Essex CC kept the Saturday service and contracted it to Regal Busways.

Now, unsurprisingly, the Saturday service is proposed to be withdrawn aswell.

The main concern is that there will be no direct service between Loughton and Epping if the H1 is withdrawn, the only alternative bus is Essex CC 541 operated by Arriva which operates between Loughton and Epping, via Abridge, Theydon Bois and Ivy Chimneys, extending to Harlow on evenings and Sundays.
Although its a shame that there is no direct bus, I doubt a direct service will come back now, especially as Essex CC already fund the 541, and there is still a Loughton to Harlow route (the 555 which operates via Waltham Abbey).
