2021/27: Fflecsi Bus Service Accessibility, Formal Council Questions and Responses - Monday, 13th December, 2021

No. Item


Question to the Deputy Leader/Cabinet Member for City Services: 2021/27 - Fflecsi Bus Service Accessibility


Councillor Mogford asked:


Whilst your one-off December free bus initiative has been appreciated by many it is still the case that bus services in the semi-rural areas of Newport are inadequate.


Looking at the Fflecsi bus service (see below), no it doesn't have Newport covered despite it claims.


When can all the good people of the Langstone Ward expect to get access to this Fflecsi bus service?





Councillor Jeavons responded:


The Fflecsi bus service across Wales is a Transport for Wales (TfW) service. Any enquiries regarding its geographic coverage should be directed to TfW.


However, the area you reference was already covered by the Demand Responsive (DRT) Community Transport service, prior to the introduction of the Fflecsi service and this remains the case.
