Service 64 - Llangollen to Glyn Ceiriog and Llanarmon
From 1st April 2020 Tanat Valley will no longer be the operator on this service - the new contract has been won by Llew Jones, Llanrwst whom I believe will operate the service from their out-station at Whitehurst near Froncysysllte. Tanat Valley took back the service in September 2018 after they lost out to easyCoach who to say the least were poor operators of this service. Tanat also ran the service from December 2016 to March 2017 having taken it over from R.J's of Wem who had to relinquish the service when they lost their licence.

Rail Replacement Gobowen to Chester
An unusual working of a bus replacing a train occurs now daily (Monday to Friday) between Gobowen and Chester (0915-1040).

The latest arrival here for use on the 17 Wrexham and Moss and the 34 Wrexham Trevalyn is FE60XOG a Merecedes Sprint which was new in November 2011 to Monmouth Council. It is low floor with a ramp for a wheelchair but there are currently teething problems with the outward opening doors and some of the higher kerbs. <PHOTO FE60XOG>
