First Essex - Green Livery

First Bus Essex

First Essex operates a network of over 70 bus services linking towns and villages across the region.

In Southend, Colchester, Chelmsford and Basildon our Metro and Overground networks provide high frequency, colour coded bus routes that give a value for money and realistic alternative to taking the car for commuters, shoppers, visiting friends or simply for getting around. If you're travelling to Stansted Airport our network of limited stop coach services will save you the hassle and cost of driving and parking, an attractive thought, especially when you are returning from holiday or business.

For regular bus users we have a range of tickets all designed to save you money. These range from a FirstDay ticket which gives a day's unlimited travel on all First buses in the area, through to FirstWeek, and FirstMonth tickets.
