A free park and ride scheme in Aberystwyth will be scrapped from August, Ceredigion council has said.

It said in April the number of people who used the buses, which travel to the town centre and Bronglais hospital, had "remained modest" and it had no plans to renew the contract.

The decision to stop funding the scheme was delayed in June pending a cabinet meeting on Tuesday.

Councillor Ceredig Davies described it as "disappointing".

He said the park and ride was a valued scheme, particularly for elderly people to access hospital services.

The council will notify people of alternative transportation options before August.
