Two new services are being introduced by Epping Forest Community Transport, with routes being launched between Dobbs Weir and Epping and Churchgate Street and Harlow town centre.

Epping Forest Community Transport co-ordinator Angela Canham said: "The team and I are delighted to provide Shopper buses giving access to essential services and enabling independence.

Fares are £3.50 for a single journey (£5 for a return journey). Children aged five-16 travel half price (under-fives free).
Concessionary passes must be shown to receive free transport.
