Bus information event at library
2:33pm Wednesday 9th April 2014 in News
BUS users in the Vale are invited to attend a Barry library event aimed at discovering more about a company’s network changes.
Cardiff Bus customers from Barry and Penarth can meet representatives from 10.30am to 2.30pm at and information day on Friday, April 11.
Changes are being introduced on April 20 and customers can get answers to any queries about affected bus services.
Customers can also pick up a Vale of Glamorgan Cardiff Bus guide, a booklet which will contain all of the new Cardiff Bus timetables for the Vale.
Extra booklets will also be left at the library for customers to pick up at their own convenience.
Cardiff Bus announced changes to its services as a result of funding cuts by the Welsh Government to the All Wales Concessionary Travel Scheme.
Two 98 journeys will be lost, but the 97 and 97A remain unchanged. An early Saturday morning journey on route 94 is withdrawn and one now starts from Sully instead of Barry and for the 95 and 95A services a number of journeys start from Barry town centre instead of Barry Island or Winston Square. The X91 service will stay the same.
Cardiff Bus is increasing prices on a select few fares as a result of the reduction in the reimbursement it receives.
Business development manager at Cardiff Bus, Gareth Stevens said: “Unfortunately, due to the cuts in funding by the Welsh Government, we have been forced to reduce services and increase select fares. In order to minimise the impact of these changes, we have tried to ensure that the changes made are during off-peak times. We would strongly urge those that have queries about timetables changes to come to Barry library on Friday where we will be able to answer any questions and issue new timetables.”
