Bus timetable is out of date, complains reader

A llanblogger reader and regular traveller has commented on the bus situation in the area:

* The bus timetable as displayed
at Ruabon station.
Our reader says it is now
largely a "work of fiction".
The reader, who wishes not to be named, says:

"Five weeks after D Jones & Son stopped running their service on route 5 Llangollen to Wrexham, the bus stop timetables at Ruabon station continue to show the former 20 minute interval service for weekdays.

"This is hardly the sort of misinformation visitors arriving by train at Ruabon want as regards the up to date service for onward travel to Llangollen with route 5.

"As now operated by Arriva Cymru at a 40 minute frequency, the Llangollen bus does not call at the station. Visitors need to know to walk down Station Road to the bus stop on Bridge Street - or wait for the near two hourly T3 Barmouth service.

"As Ruabon is the railhead for the Dee Valley and connections through to Barmouth, provision of correct bus service information is essential before the start of the season for visitors. They will not be aware of the reduction in service frequency or the lost convenience of buses at the station stop.
