A consultation is asking people for their views on plans to remove a bus route and reduce services on another that both serve an Upminster school.
Transport for London (TfL) is proposing to withdraw the 648 route, which runs between Romford Market and Cranham, and calls at The Coopers’ Company and Coborn School.
The service runs four times a day, twice in the morning towards Cranham and twice in the afternoon in the opposite direction to Romford.
The travel operator is also planning to remove the 7.43am number 646 service from Noak Hill to Cranham and the 4pm service going the other way.
The 646 bus also serves the same school and a TfL spokesperson said the affected services had low usage and the cuts would allow it to make better use of its resources.
