Capital Citybus sees it’s last day on routes 324 and 348 on 6th February. Route 324 passes to Ensign Bus (seeing them re-enter
regular service in Thurrock) and route 348 passes to fellow First company Eastern National. A special service using older vehicles
was operated to mark the occasion - a small gallery of images from the day can be found on the Capital Citybus page on this
website (click here for the link).
On 10th October 1999, Thamesway and Arriva Southend combined their London express coach operations into a single service,
operated as a Green Line branded route. The X and S number systems were dropped, with the main service becoming 721. There
was also various peak hour variants using numbers 720, 722 and 723 (hmmm......Green line coaches using route numbers 721, 722
and 723 in Thurrock? Now who would have hought we’d see that again?!!).
In December 1999, Town & Country take over routes 324, 325, 348 and 509 from Ensign.
