Reviews of First Essex Buses
- Liam Kotobuki Added June 17, 2018★ ★ ☆ ☆ ☆Needs a lot of improvements.
Living in a small rural village and not driving a car means I often have to rely on the world's most unreliable service. Many times when I was travelling to college the bus would be up to 40-50 minutes late (keep in mind the service only runs every hour anyway), or even not turn up at all. The timetable frequently changes without much publicity and their website often has different timetables to the ones at the bus stops.
They did, however, recently change the service again and so far it's been slightly more reliable. Perhaps only 10 minutes late instead of the usual 20.
Staff are generally unfriendly which is really just not good enough. I'm giving two stars because I have, on rare occasions, been graced with a driver who actually smiles. Given the extortionate price compared to services elsewhere in the country, I expect more.
- Kerry Hallatt Added November 27, 2017★ ★ ★ ★ ☆The drivers are usually really friendly but there is a huge problem with the service. Buses are often delayed and sometimes drivers drive straight past. Having previously lived in London I was quite shocked at the fact the buses stop running so early; some stop as early as 8pm.
