Give it a go this Christmas – New town bus link service up and running!

Two new new bus links for those living in and around Wrexham town centre is now up and running.

The Town Link services, which launched last week, offer transport for passengers on key routes from the Mold Road area and Rhosnesni/Maesydre areas into the town centre.

It is hoped that with the service being up and running for the Christmas period, that shoppers will take advantage of the new links through town.

Details and images of the two Town Link routes can be found below:

Town Link 1 serves Rhosnesni Lane, Maesydre, Market Street, Eagles Meadow, High Street, Island Green and Wrexham bus station.

Town Link 2 serves Mold Road, Wrexham Technology Park, Pentre Bach, Ruthin Road, Island Green and Wrexham bus station.

Adult fares cost £1.50 and concessionary travel passes will be accepted.

The new town services will be the first for some passengers since the collapse of GHA Coaches last summer.

Commenting on its launch, Cllr David A Bithell, Lead Member for Environment and Transport, said it the new Town Link will “reconnect some of these communities, and provides improved access to the town centre and key retail locations.”

He continued: “Following the collapse of a major bus company and changes made by other operators in reviewing their networks, parts of the wider town centre have been left without any access to public transport.

“I am very pleased this service is operational in the run-up to Christmas, and can provide access to those communities who have been without local bus services for some time.

“I hope this service will support those residents who have contacted us, and support the local economy by bringing more people into Wrexham Town Centre.

Christopher Valentine, Managing Director of Valentine’s Travel Solutions, said: “As a local business owner and employer, I am very pleased to have launched this new bus service for the residents of and visitors to Wrexham.

“The company has taken delivery of a new bus built specifically to suit the route, and this opens up another exciting chapter for our company.”

Cllr Paul Jones, Local Member for Maesydre ward added: “The return of our much missed bus service is very welcome news for the residents of Maesydre. I encourage everyone to make use of the facility and I would like to thank all those who have worked hard to make this happen”.
