Go-ahead London, a significant part of a major group, visits Harlow twice a day on Monday to Saturdays, when commercial service 575 runs one return journey to the town. The route has been operating for a good few years, but is now a shadow of the 3-5 journeys to Romford (not all to/from Harlow) that once were provided.
Operationally the service is linked with Essex County Council school service 804 between Debden and Chigwell, and for that reason a double deck bus normally features. During school holidays and on Saturdays when the 804 does not operate the 575 still does, and at these times single deck buses have been known to operate.
Go-ahead have a Commercial Services Department which is separate from the main London operations. The department has its own vehicles, which are of course not required to be all-over red, and many are not. Other operations besides the 575/804 undertaken include things like Wimbledon Tennis and other special events services, private hires, school contracts and railway replacement work.
Below are illustrations of some operations that have occurred are which are still possible based on the vehicle remaining on the Commercial Services fleet and based at Rainham.
