Local Travel Arrangement services to resume
Flintshire County Council’s Local Travel Arrangement services are set to resume following the Welsh Government announcement that non-essential shops can open from Monday 22 June.
The majority of the services will be running on the existing timetables from Monday. However, due to having to operate on 25% capacity of vehicle seats, we have introduced a temporary timetable on the LT7, Hope-Treuddyn-Mold and also the LT8, Caergwrle-Hope-Penyffordd-Higher Kinnerton-Broughton Retail Park.
These services both have two separate timetables to try an accommodate passenger numbers from Hope and Treuddyn on the LT7 and Penyffordd and Higher Kinnerton on the LT8. The service LT7 will have a maximum seating capacity for ten people and the LT8 a maximum seating for four.
Passengers on all Local Travel Arrangement buses are being asked to wear face coverings to enable us to offer these maximum seating arrangements and there will also be a “no change given” policy introduced to minimise non-essential contact.
All Flintshire vehicles are wiped down on touch points at the end of each journey and deep cleaned at the end of every evening.
Timetables and services across the whole of Flintshire, both commercial and community, will be reviewed on a regular basis according to passenger usage but will be governed by Welsh Government guidelines.
Passengers are reminded to check the service providers’ timetables before making any travel plans.
