Many folks travelling to Othona by public transport will be familiar with the DaRT 4 bus service from Southminster train station. There is currently a consultation by Essex County Council on whether to withdraw or reduce this service. This would greatly impact all those who travel here by public transport as the DaRT 4 service is a vital link between Southminster train station and the Othona Community. It is also a very important service for those living in the local area who rely on public transport, including all our volunteers who don't drive. Please can you support us to try and keep this service going. Can you fill in the online survey by following the link below?
