Joy at Swansea bus link

Residents of Crymlyn Parc Estate will enjoy a direct bus service to and from Swansea from 4th January 2010.

First were approached by Neath Port Talbot Council to see if service 156 (Swansea to Tonna Hospital via Neath) had enough spare time in the schedule to provide three journeys each way via the new estate.

Head of Engineering & Transport, John Flower, said he was pleased that a solution had been found to the problem, particularly in view of the current economic situation that had forced First to make a number of cuts to services in December.

Tony McNiff from First said he looked forward to welcoming the many concessionary bus pass holders who live along the route, but warned it was very much a case of "use it or lose it" as no subsidy would be received by the company for the diversion.

The new timetable for service 156 will be available in due course from traveline cymru by logging on to or by telephoning 0871 200 22 33
