Powys Public Transportation Consultation 2015
Entry by Community Group: Community Council
Public transport provision in Powys will be changing from November 2015. Why? Austerity measures have put a significant squeeze on public sector spending across the country. As a result, Powys’s budget from the Welsh Government for 2015/16 is around 4% less which means we need to reduce our annual spending by more than £11m to balance the books.
Powys are having consultation on draft proposals for public transport. In both new options the bus from Brecon to Llandovery has been removed.
