Essex Bus Magazine


About the Group


Essex Bus Magazine (EBM) is our monthly

journal, packed full of news, articles and

archive features.  In A5 size, the magazine

runs to 36 pages and is now in full colour

throughout (except for any historical black &

white photos).


EBM normally has detailed coverage of the following operators:

Arriva – Southend, Colchester & Harlow

Ensign Bus

First in Essex

Hedingham & Chambers

Ipswich Buses’ Essex operations


  Panther Travel

  Central Connect

  and Vectare


and we aim to cover other minor bus operators in the County. We list all known service changes by all operators of registered local bus routes.

We also feature acquisitions and disposals by the dealership side of Ensign Bus.


The magazine also includes topical articles and historical features.  Twice a year we publish EBM Extra, a similarly sized magazine full of historical features.  All members receive this free of charge as part of the annual subscription.
