Poppit Rocket becomes fflecsi service
The 405 Poppit Rocket bus service which operates along the coast between Fishguard and Cardigan is now being operated as a fflecsi service.
Rather than operating six days in the summer and one day in the winter, the new service will operate Monday to Saturday all year around.
The service will cover the area between Fishguard and Cardigan as well as the area to the south as far as Crymych.
This will provide a more sustainable and usable service for communities, many of which do not currently have a regular bus service all year around.
The new fflecsi service will also provide a link to the Cardigan Integrated Health Centre.
The service is being funded using existing bus subsidy.
Cabinet Member for Residents’ Services Cllr Rhys Sinnett said: “The expansion of this fflecsi service is fantastic news for residents and visitors.
“The existing provision has proven to be very successful in opening up the service to a wider area and providing greater travel options for passengers.
“This new fflecsi service will also enable residents and visitors with access to transport 6 days a week all year around which has not previously been the case.”
The service started on Monday 2nd October and it is available anytime between 7.30am to 6.30pm, Monday to Saturday.
Booking can be made via the fflecsi app or by phoning 0300 234 0300.
