A new bus service has been launched to replace Aberystwyth's park and ride, after Ceredigion council declined to renew its contract.

The circular service will serve the same route every half an hour.

The council blamed work at Bronglais Hospital for the withdrawal of the park and ride but said it would fund the route for another year if Mid Wales Travel did not run it commercially.

The new service, launched on Thursday, will run for a four-month trial.

It is a partnership between the council and Mid Wales Travel.
