Arriva Bus Wales route losses is 'body blow' for towns

Plans to scrap several bus routes in mid and west Wales is a "body blow" for rural communities, according to the Protection of Rural Wales campaign group.

It comes after Arriva Buses Wales announced a depot in Aberystwyth and bus stations in New Quay, Lampeter and Dolgellau could close in December.

That would mean the cancellation of buses 20, 40, 40C, 50, 585 and X94 from the same date. Arriva Buses Wales blamed public transport funding and fuel costs.

Cemlyn Davies spent the day in one town in Ceredigion which is expected to lose its local bus service at the end of the year.
