Here are the details based on the 2018 event:
For the 2020 rally we are again teaming up with Visions lnternational to help host 'The Londoner in the Country'- a follow on from their very successful West Ham garage event in 2016. Although we'll have our separate bus displays - The Essex Bus Rallyfeatures old and new non-London buses whereas The Londoner ln The Country is purely London vehicles old and new. Together we hope to attract over 100 buses and coaches - this will make us one of the largest bus events in the South East of England and an event that is sure to be on everyone's calendar. We are pleased to announce that a number of bus operaiors both from the Piovinces and London have agreed to send buses to the event.
We are planning to run free shuttle buses from Basildon, Wickford and Upminster. Further details will be announced soon on the website www.essexbusrally.com
