More Traws Cymru expansion

Express Motors R624 MNU, a Northern Counties Palatine-bodied Volvo Olympian, in Blaenau Ffestiniog in July 2015 on the service from Caernarfon, a route slated for rebranding as TrawsCymru. 

New TrawsCymru and TrawsCymru Connect services are to be launched in Gwynedd and Conwy, using six electric buses. Neither was recommended in last year’s TrawsCymru review, which proposed two other routes which are now part of a further review. 

Service T22 will link Caernarfon and Blaenau Ffestiniog via Porthmadog, a route operated for decades by Express Motors until the operator lost its licence in 2017. The T22 timetable will be coordinated with that of the Bangor-Aberystwyth T2 between Caernarfon and Porthmadog, two substantial towns which have been poorly connected since Express Motors’ demise. 

The T19 TrawsCymru Connect service will operate between Llandudno and Blaenau Ffestiniog. Despite its name, it will not connect with the T2, which bypasses Blaenau Ffestiniog.
