WAG: People living in parts of rural Carmarthenshire and Ceredigion will find it easier to get to work, early in 2009, thanks to a new & innovative Euro-funded bus scheme which will provide a unique door-to-door service. The new bus service has been made possible with almost £450,000 of Convergence Funding through the Welsh Assembly Government.
It will enable passengers to book their bus rides from home, which will link up with conventional bus & train services in the surrounding area. The 3-year pilot project, known as Bwcabus, is aimed at providing transport for people who live in rural communities and cannot access employment, education and training.
