Changes to Route 66 from end August

Changes to Route 66 from 27th August

No, nobody’s changing the Will Rogers Highway but First Essex are making changes to local bus services, including Route 66, that will affect West Bergholt.

The 66 and 66A will be combined to form a 20 minute frequency service 66, operating West Bergholt to Rowhedge end to end, improving the service to the outer ends of the route. The 66A journeys and section of route via Speedwell Road and Abbotts Road and Barnhall will be withdrawn.

The Sunday ECC tendered journeys between Colchester and West Bergholt will depart five minutes later, to improve the punctuality of the service. Buses are currently timed to leave Osbourne Street at 45 minutes past each hour from 0945 to 2145. They will instead depart five minutes later at 50 minutes past each hour from 0950 until 2150 service.
