GHA Coaches: Bus passengers still facing disruption

GHA Coaches bus sits idle with 'Not in service' sign showing

Passengers in north east Wales are still facing disruption after a bus company went into administration.

Ruabon-based GHA Coaches ceased trading on 15 July, with the loss of 320 jobs.

It ran 230 vehicles on school and bus routes across north Wales, Cheshire and Shropshire.

Denbighshire, Flintshire and Wrexham councils say that while school routes are covered until the end of term, they still are working with other bus operators to cover public services.

In Wrexham, 22 routes are out of operation until further notice.

A spokesman said: "We are doing everything we can to minimise this disruption, however, the loss of such a major transport operator will inevitably have consequences for the immediate future."

Eight routes in Denbighshire remain withdrawn or suspended.

In Flintshire, arrangements are in place for 10 of the 11 routes operated by the company.
