Two councils to pilot new bus services in rural areas

Two councils are to experiment with how bus services in their rural areas can be better organised.

Vale of Glamorgan and Ceredigion councils have £100,000 from the Welsh government for the year-long pilots.

The aim is to see how bus firms and councils can work together to cut costs, plan routes and coordinate timetables to meet users' demands.

Last month Wales' largest bus operator, Stagecoach, confirmed it was cutting services in five counties.

Lis Burnett, Vale of Glamorgan council's cabinet member for transportation, spoke to Radio Wales about what it might mean.
