Service Change from 31st March 2024

3 months ago Thu 15th Feb 2024

Changes to Times from 31st March 2024

We are making several changes to services from 31st March following on from the ending of the Welsh Government’s Bus Transition Fund (BTF) support scheme.

The BTF scheme has provided stability by funding the bus network across Wales to be a similar in size and shape to how it was before the pandemic. From the next service change, like all operators across Wales, the costs of our services will need to be covered by the fares we sell on board and in our app. For most services this is already the case, so there will be minor changes or no need to change at all. However, a boost in funding that the Welsh Government provides to local councils for supported bus routes means routes will be changed or new routes introduced to provide a service to an area where it would not be commercially viable. We've also added more trips at busy times, as we are welcoming more customers aboard our most popular services.
