Aberystwyth Wales UK, Wednesday 2 October 2013
In a surprise announcement on Tuesday 1 Oct 120123, Arriva Buses Wales announced that it was pulling out of 6 routes in and around Aberystwyth, leading the closure of the local bus depot and garages in nearby towns on December 21 this year. The axing of the services will lead to the loss of 46 jobs.
Arriva Buses Wales blamed public transport funding and fuel costs.
"A recent network review has led us to believe that current services in this area cannot, despite our best efforts, continue," the company said in a statement.
