Town & Country Logo 2

Town & Country Buses started in 1998, initially with route 20, which ran every 20 minutes
between Tilbury, Little Thurrock, Grays & Lakeside. The service used low floor buses and was
very reliable - a fact not missed by itís users!

Route 20 was followed by Thurrock council contracted routes 380 and 389 (the later was only
operated on Saturdays) and then the 22 (Tilbury to Basildon).

In 1999 Town & Country took on the local Ensign Bus network, though this was quickly passed on to Arriva.

When Harris Bus finally collapsed, Town & Country was able to step in as the main contractor for all of c2cís rail
replacement services on the Fenchurch Street to Shoeburyness line. The 40 was also born around this time, offering
a commuter service from Chafford Hundred to Grays rail station.

More expansion followed with gains from Thurrock Council contract work in the shape of routes 98 (Orsett Hospital -
Lakeside), 100 (Basildon - Lakeside, sun only), 364 (Purfleet - Grays) and 374 (Horndon - Grays). Town & Country
were also quite successful at gaining school contract work as well.

Unfortunately financial problems reared their ugly head and Town & country came to a surprisingly spectacular
collapse in 2006.
