#AYearOfBuses 83: intu Lakeside – Chadwell St Mary


Today on #AYearOfBuses, we’re taking a look at one of Ensignbus’ routes within its small network centred on Thurrock.

Ensign’s 83 runs up to every 20 mins between intu Lakeside, Grays and Chadwell St Mary, provided by the mainstay of their fleet of smart silver and blue-liveried double deckers. It combines with route 73 between Cross Keys, west of Chadwell St Mary, and the Lakeside shopping centre, to create one of Ensign’s core routes through Thurrock.

Vehicle-wise, the 83 enjoys a wide variety of choice from Ensign’s smartly-presented fleet…from their speciality BCI Enterprise double deckers, to Volvo hybrids, B7TLs, B9TLs and more.

Of particular note (and congratulations!) has to be Ensign’s industry-leading 24/7 customer services hotline. There’s a certain romance in the nostalgia of a 24-hour bus information line which adds to the whole ‘family-run’ ethos – how many other bus companies can say that they provide such a thing in 2019?
