Bus Service 198 from 18th May 2014 , Llanelli – Trimsaran – Kidwelly – Ferryside – Carmarthen

Please see http://www.carmarthenshire.gov.uk/English/transport/Buses/TravelTimes/Pages/BusServiceChanges18052014.aspx for full details and details of alterations to other Bus Services.

“The existing service is provided by Carmarthenshire County Council but duplicates other services along many parts of the route. The service will therefore be reduced so that there is a limited service between Llanelli, Trimsaran and Kidwelly, with the aim of complementing the other commercial services. Buses will therefore run from Llanelli to Carmarthen at 0740, 1420 and 1650, returning from Carmarthen to Llanelli at 0850, 1610 and 1800. This means that the County has managed to accommodate journeys from the Llansaint and Ferryside areas into Carmarthen before 0900 and returning at 1800, following the withdrawal of similar commercial journeys by First Cymru last year. Most of the above journeys will run via the Waunyclun area in Trimsaran.

Recognising that the Llansaint and Ferryside areas do not have access to other bus services, we are retaining daytime journeys between Kidwelly and Carmarthen on this route. The buses will leave Kidwelly at 0925 and 1235, returning from Carmarthen at 1010 and 1320.

The 0925 journey from Kidwelly to Carmarthen and the return at 1320 from Carmarthen will run via Croesyceiliog instead of Cwmffrwd, so that the Croesyceiliog area now has a service on Mondays to Saturdays, in place of service 240 only on Wednesdays.

The Sunday service will be withdrawn.”
