  • Route 210 was a circular contract route serving Loughton, Debden, Abridge, Lambourne End and Chigwell. The contract was given to Clintona from 1 October 1998, and due to low patronage, Essex CC stopped the route on 27 March 2004.
  • Route 217 was awarded to Clintona on the 21st April 1999 operating between Ongar and Epping. It ceased on 27 March 2004.

  • Route 396 was a contract route between the small village of Hastingwood and Harlow, operating between 1 October 1998 to 27 March 2004 like many of their other routes. The withdrawal of this route left Hastingwood without a bus service.

The routes were originally operated by Wests Coaches since the routes began, before the bus operations of Wests Coaches was taken over by County Bus.
