A council has stepped in to save 21 bus services in Essex after a bus company went into administration.
Stansted Transit, which operates services in mid and north-west Essex called in administrators last week.
Routes serving Maldon, Takely, Bishops Stortford, Saffron Walden, Colchester, Chelmsford and Harlow are affected.
Essex County Council is now running the routes and said school bus services operated by the company will also continue to run.
Services 1, 5, 7, 7A, 9/10, 11, 14, 17, 18, 21, 71C, 73A, 118, 133, 301, 306, 317, 318, 319, 347 and 392 will run according to their normal timetables.
The council's passenger transport manager, Nick Roberts, said: "It was important that we stepped in to save these services and we have reacted quickly to the situation having new operators in position within hours.
"All of these services will continue to operate as normal until a formal tender process takes place later in the summer."
