UNPROFITABLE bus services may be scrapped as Essex County Council seeks to cut costs.

The council has launched a public consultation on six routes, including the 85 and 86 between Brightlingsea and Mistley, which runs on Wednesdays.

On average, the services under consultation cost the council £8.29 per passenger to provide.

Other routes under threat include the 383, which serves Rickstones School in Witham.

The current contracts for the routes expire on August 30.

To take part in the consultation, which runs until June 27, email Passenger.TransportLiaison@essex.gov.uk
