II.1.4)Short description:

The TrawsCymru T4 bus service operates from Newtown in the heart of rural Wales to the Capital via Llandrindod Wells, Brecon, Merthyr Tydfil, Pontypridd and Cardiff. The service has been operational since 2011. Whilst the service frequency has been enhanced along with significant investment from WG in the quality of the vehicles deployed on the route, the infrastructure along the route has not yet been standardised or enhanced in any way.

In order to protect the public investment in this service, the first Statutory Quality Bus Partnership Scheme (SQBPS) was created by PCC in April 2012 and under this scheme, there is a commitment by the authority to enhance the infrastructure to a consistent, high quality standard and this will provide as a minimum, raised kerbs compliant with the Equalities Act 2010 (min 120mm kerb face) and consistent bus stop information (via Traveline Cymru) and wherever possible an illuminated bus stop sign and shelter.
