News and Info from Deeside, Flintshire, North Wales

A new hourly bus service between Corwen, Ruthin, Mold and Chester has begun today, set to begin on January 23rd. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The TrawsCymru T8 service has been launched by Transport for Wales and Denbighshire County Council. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The new service will provide increased frequency and faster travel times for passengers, improving connectivity in the region and allowing for seamless travel without the need to change buses. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The new T8 bus will connect at Corwen with the T10 (Corwen – Betws y Coed – Bangor) and with more journeys on the T3 (Wrexham – Corwen – Bala – Dolgellau – Barmouth), providing a convenient travel interchange for customers. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The T8 bus service will be operated by M&H Coaches, and customers will be able to take advantage of the new TrawsCymru app and website, which offers the ability to purchase mobile tickets, access up-to-date information, track services, and see the carbon savings from using public transport. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

New timetables are available on Traveline and the TrawsCymru website. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Deputy Minister for Climate Change, Lee Waters, stated, “An hourly bus service will make a real difference to bus users in the area and will help to encourage more people to use public transport to get about.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“This is part of the Welsh Government’s investment in north Wales and future developments are being looked at by our North Wales Transport Commission led by Lord Burns.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Lee Robinson, Development Director Mid, North and Rural Wales, added, “The T8 is the latest in a number of improvements to regional bus services across Wales.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“TfW is committed to improving accessibility and connectivity for Wales’ country towns that are not on the rail network and we look forward to all the benefits the new T8 will bring.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Denbighshire County Council’s Lead Member for Environment and Transport, Cllr Barry Mellor, said, “The T8 represents a remarkable opportunity to improve the travel opportunities for residents in south Denbighshire.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“In future, they will benefit not just from an increase in frequency but improved through-services and connections. It will also allow those traveling from England to access leisure and visitor opportunities in Wales.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
