Pembrokeshire County Council has announced a welcome boost to local transport services by securing a replacement for the popular fflesci Bwcabus that was due to end this month.
The Bwcabus service had been due to finish on October 31st following the ending of Welsh Government funding through the Rural Development Programme grant.
Using some of the existing local bus service budget, Pembrokeshire County Council has funded a replacement service with operator Richards Bros from Wednesday November 1st until March 31st 2024.
The service will operate from 7am until 6.30pm, Monday to Friday, with the 642 and 644 fixed routes continuing to operate.
Cllr Rhys Sinnett, Cabinet Member for Residents’ Services, said: “I am delighted that the Council has been able to step in and fund a replacement for the Bwcabus service until the end of March next year and I thank officers for their work on this.
“We know that the service is so important to many people in some of the most rural areas of Pembrokeshire, Carmarthenshire and Ceredigion.”
Bookings can continue to be made via the fflecsi app or by phoning 0300 234 0300.
