Bus services – update on timetables from 2 January onwards

Date: 21/12/2017

Following the Traffic Commissioner’s decision, Express Motors will not have licences to provide buses to the public after 31 December 2017. The Council is making every effort to ensure public bus services in place of the services that Express Motors currently provide.


Therefore, from 2 January 2018 onward, public bus services that have been provided by the Express Motors company will be run by other companies on behalf of the Council.


Dafydd Wyn Williams, Head of Gwynedd Council’s Environment Department said: “As a Council, we are doing everything possible to ensure that as many public bus services remain available from 2 January onward, but there is a shortage of suitable vehicles available to bus companies in the area.


“As a result, there will be a need to amend bus timetables in some areas from 2 January, and details are being updated on the Council website and at the relevant bus stops. Some timetables have already been updates on the website, and we will be confirming the remaining details that will be in place from 2 January over the coming days.


“We appreciate that any change can cause inconvenience, but the decision to revoke Express Motors’ licences, is beyond our control. We can confirm that our officers are working tirelessly with local bus companies to provide services for Gwynedd residents from 2 January onwards.”


Arrangements have already been confirmed for any school buses that Express Motors have been delivering, and details have been sent to all relevant families.
