Funding boost brings return of bus from West Wales to Cardiff
Welsh Government funding has ensured the daily return of the 701 bus service between Carmarthen, Cross Hands, Swansea and Cardiff, launching on December 5 - just in time for Christmas.
The T1c service will run Monday to Saturday from Carmarthen central bus station affording a full afternoon in Cardiff with the return bus leaving Cardiff Customhouse Street at 4.40pm.
The bus comes from Aberystwyth at 7.40am calling at Aberaeron, Lampeter and Pencader as service T1 with no change of bus required at Carmarthen for the ongoing journey to Cardiff. The return journey follows the same route in reverse with again no change of bus necessary.
Carmarthenshire County Council's executive board member for environment and transport services, Cllr Hazel Evans, said: “The service will continue into the New Year but with funding approved for six months by Welsh Government because of requests made of them. It is important the service is used well to enable it to be sustained.”
