Welcome to the Eastern and Southern Branch

  • A monthly bulletin containing Society news, articles and detailed route news information, covering both the Eastern area (Buckinghamshire, Cambridgeshire, Essex, Hertfordshire, Norfolk, South Lincolnshire, and Suffolk) and the Southern area (Berkshire, Hampshire [except the New Forest], Isle of Wight, Kent, Oxfordshire, Surrey, East and West Sussex). We do not produce route news for the Transport for London area, which is covered in great detail by our friends at the London Omnibus Traction Society (LOTS).
  • A programme of tours and visits throughout the year, including a series of study tours using scheduled bus services.
  • Membership of the very active local group – the Herts and Beds Group.

We have started a new programme of Chelmsford Meetings in conjunction with the Essex Bus Enthusiasts Group. They are held at Quaker Meeting House, Rainsford Road, Chelmsford, CM1 2QL on Saturday afternoons. Doors open for a social chat at 14.00, with the presentation starting at 14.30. Details are in our calendar; click here (though please note the April meeting will be at Chelmsford Central Baptist Church). The Quaker Meeting House is only a five-minute walk from Chelmsford Bus and Railway stations.
