A route formerly run by a now-closed bus operator will be partly covered from the New Year.
From January 7, 2018, a new commercial service will partly replace the former No 6 service route operated by D Jones & Son, which ceased trading on December 16.
The new No 4/4a (Wrexham to Penycae via Rhos) route will be operated by Arriva Buses on an hourly basis, and serve the communities of Rhostyllen, Rhosllanerchurgog, Johnstown and Penycae, including the Afonethia Estate.
Cllr David A Bithell, Lead Member for Environment and Transport at Wrexham Council, said: “I’m pleased to note that this new service will start in the New Year and provide some cover for the communities affected.
“However, we are aware that the new service will not completely connect all of those areas previously covered by the Number 6 bus operated by D Jones & Son, and with that in mind we continue to secure further provision for those areas, as part of our bus service contingency plan.
Further information on the new 4 and 4a services, including routes and timetables can be found on Arriva’s website.
