What has happened to the Wrexham Shuttle?

Wrexham County Borough Council can confirm that the Wrexham Shuttle, a demand responsive transport service operated from areas of North Wrexham to Wrexham Industrial Estate since May 2005, will cease operation on 1 April 2010.

The service is being terminated partially as a result of the removal of funding by the Welsh Assembly Government.

Wrexham County Borough Council has reached an agreement with Arriva Buses Wales to provide a fixed route local bus service that will assist the majority of the current Wrexham Shuttle passengers to maintain sustainable access to Wrexham Industrial Estate. This new service will operate between Wrexham General Station, Wrexham Bus Station and the Industrial Estate every 30 minutes from 5.30am until 7.00pm Monday to Saturday. Arriva Buses Wales, as the current operator of the Wrexham Shuttle will be providing existing passengers of the Shuttle with timetable leaflets in the next few days.

Further information on the route and timetable can be obtained from the Wrexham County BusLine on 01978 266166.

Cllr David Bithell, Lead Member for the Environment and Transport at Wrexham County Borough Council said “Wrexham County Borough Council are pleased to have reached an agreement with Arriva Buses Wales to operate this service. The majority of the timetable is being provided commercially with certain earlier and later journeys between Wrexham Bus Station and the Industrial Estate being partially funded from the Council’s public transport budget”.
