Essex County Council - Community Link
« on: November 18, 2007, 06:11:31 PM »
Starting off a topic on non pcvs in the Anglia Bus Forum area, Community Link is a unit of Essex County Council Highways & Transportation, and was formed on 1/4/04, to take over the operation of all welfare transport from Social Services.

There is currently an operational fleet of approx 80 vehicles (the vast majority Iveco Turbo Daily/Euromotive minibuses), which form four districts, and cover all of Essex apart from the Unitary Authorities of Thurrock & Southend.

The only Community Link base in the Anglia Forum area is at Saffron Walden, with two Ivecos allocated; V706 DNG and GN 05 XWW. These are based at the Council offices in Newport Road.
This forms part of the Central Essex district, which also covers the Braintree, Brentwood, Chelmsford and Maldon areas.

Fleet livery is white/pink, but older (and "pool") vehicles are unmarked.

Community Link also runs two ex "conventional" bus services, but as these are in the Braintree and Colchester areas, they are beyond the geographical scope of this forum.
