PRESTATYN public transport users can now book a bus by phone.

The town will receive one of two new flexible bus services being launched in Denbighshire from Monday, August 3 .

The Fflecsi service pilot scheme, which will also run in Denbigh, offer passengers the chance to book journeys by app or phone and be picked up at the nearest and clearly identified suitable point to their home.

Denbighshire County Council has secured funding from Transport for Wales for the services which will cater for increased demand for buses as lockdown eases while maintaining social distancing guidelines on-board.

Cllr Brian Jones, the council’s lead member for waste, transport and the environment, said: “As we emerge from lockdown and see an increased demand for public transport, Fflecsi offers peace of mind for passengers, including guaranteed seats, flexible drop-offs points, reduced waiting times and better connections to other services.

“Fflecsi will see increased services for passengers while ensuring they feel safe using public transport and visiting our town centres.”

The services are pilots to see whether flexible and bookable services work and whether they help passengers.

As such, the Council will monitor the services closely during the pilot period.

The flexible services replace the 40 service covering Prestatyn and Meliden and the 66 service covering Denbigh and Henllan.
