The number 75 and 91 buses serve Tiptree, each calling at the following towns and villages:
- Smyths Green
- Great Totham
(Note April-May 2012: there are late night buses from Colchester back to Tiptree around 21:00 and 23:00. The way some of the timetables are presented you can miss noticing them as they are on a separate page).
- Rivenhall End
- Tolleshunt Knights

There is also a number 14 service to Chelmsford that only runs once a week on Fridays. The trip to Chelmsford is early in the morning and returns early in the afternoon, and calls at Great Totham, Heybridge, Maldon and Danbury.
Please note this service will cease on 17th February 2013.
Passengers from Tiptree area wishing to visit Chelmsford will be required to take a 75 to Maldon and change to a 31/31X and vice versa to return, as is the case at all other times of the week. The connection time varies depending on the time of travel. Assuming a similar time being spent in Chelmsford to present, one of the better combinations is to leave Tiptree at 10:33, arriving Maldon 10:56 and changing onto the 31X at 11:02 arriving in Chelmsford at 11:35. A return 31X leaves at 14:35, arriving Maldon 15:11 and changing onto the 75 at 15:19 arriving Tiptree at 15:42. The 75 also continues to provide an hourly direct bus to shopping and services in Colchester and Maldon throughout the day.
Passengers travelling from the Dorset Way / Essex Road area of Maldon will be required to either walk to Spital Road or the High Street or take the half hourly service 90, to connect onto a 31/31X.
To avoid unexpected changes in service please check the timetables regularly.
