Two new bus link services for those living around and visiting the town centre will launch next week.

The Town Link services, which will launch on Monday 20th November, will provide transport for passengers on key routes in and around town centre areas.

It is hoped the new service will help plug the gap for areas that have lost some bus services.

Operated by Valentine’s Travel Solutions, the new services will operate from Monday to Saturday, between 9.30am and 5.50pm each day.

Town Link 1 will offer a service to those on Rhosnesni Lane, Maesydre, Market Street, Eagles Meadow, High Street and Island Green.

Town Link 2 will serve Mold Road, Wrexham Technology Park, Pentre Bach, Ruthin Road and Island Green.

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

Cllr David A Bithell, Lead Member for Environment and Transport, said: “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.

“The new Town Link will reconnect some of these communities, and provide improved access to the town centre and key retail locations.

“I am very pleased that we have managed to get this service 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, added: “As a local business owner and employer, I am very pleased to launch 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.”

Further information about the timetable can be found on the Wrexham Council website.
