Information on our routes and timetables.

Colchester United's matchday shuttle bus service will continue to run for the coming season at the Weston Homes Community Stadium.

The service has been subsidised by chairman Robbie Cowling since its inception, and the club will continue to subsidise the buses in the coming year, with the price being £2.50 for a return ticket on the service provided in association with First Buses.

The services from the Ancient Briton, Drury Arms and Fat Cat pubs will be on offer once again, all stopping on Head Street at the bus stop adjacent to the Royal Bank of Scotland to collect fans from the town.

The new season will also see the bus stop near to the Victoria Inn, with the buses picking up near HSBC on North Station Road.

There is also an East Colchester bus, which passes by the campus at the University of Essex.

Senior citizens will continue to be able to use the shuttle buses for FREE on presentation of their Essex County Council concessionary pass.

Getting To Bruff Close
In order to get to our Shuttle Bus service, it may be that you need to catch a bus on the Colchester network to reach that part of town.

Alternatively, you may wish to get a bus that gets you into the general vicinity of the stadium and walk the remaining distance!
