Two years on from its launch, the 1bws ticket covering all North Wales operators continues to make bus travel simpler, as RHODRI CLARK reports
When it suddenly appeared in 2021, the £5.70 day ticket valid on all 27 bus operators in North Wales was like a rabbit pulled from a magician’s hat. The ticket, named 1bws, was not limited to certain categories of people. There were no restrictions on the times of the day when it could be used. It covered almost 200 bus routes, the only significant exception being the Mold-Flint service 28 operated by Townlynx.
