An emergency timetable for Thurrock services has been introduced and in addition we are now operating 14 buses a day for Amazon; rail replacement for TFL and c2c is also continuing.

John, I don't think Ross is a member of this forum. The information
comes to me and many others by email and I then post it onto the forum. It may be
better if you email him direct. He has been quite good in the past
answering queries. His email address is: Ross.Newman@ensignbus.com

I sent an email to Ross but no reply, so looks as though he does not want to reveal who bought the Transit, (if it was in fact sold, maybe not due to Covid)

Probably a typo, as there's an A2B Taxicabs in Ely! As far as I'm aware they don't operate PSV's.
