Regal Busways Ltd is a independent medium sized operator established in 2001 and based in Essex. Their services operate throughout Essex and Hertfordshire

History[]

Regal Busways was incorporated in July 2001 and was originally based in Newhaven, East Sussex. The company's main business was the undertaking of Rail Replacement work at weekends. In February 2002 a business review was undertaken by the Directors at the time, which led to the business relocating to Essex and a change of direction. The new ethos was to develop the company to undertake registered service work.[1]

In October 2007 Regal Busways was awarded the small bus company of the year 2007 at the routeONE Excellence Awards.

and evening peak times giving Canvey a service that the Island never had before. The route has gone from strength to strength carrying 43,000 passengers a year. This route is assisted in its journey along the A114 because it uses the bus lane which is 3 km long. This can save 4 or 5 minutes in peak times or when the flyover is closed.
