Rural passengers say bus services vital

The closure of a bus company depot and three bus stations in mid and north Wales has led to 33 job losses, it has been confirmed.

Arriva Buses Wales axed three services and shut a depot in Aberystwyth and bus stations in New Quay, Lampeter and Dolgellau at the weekend.

Three other bus firms have taken over the three Welsh government-funded routes until June 2014.

Arriva blamed cuts in public transport funding and rising fuel costs.
