Message from the Managing Director
I am delighted to report that a number of our staff have been recognised in a number of Transport Awards in recent weeks, including four accolades at the Wales National Transport Awards. I’d like to thank them for their hard work in what, economically, have been difficult times.
Our Swansea metro service has undergone a significant change in recent weeks, with the large ftr vehicles being replaced by smart newer vehicles on route 4. (Look out for the bright red fronts). The metro concept is one which we are looking to roll out across Swansea in coming months.
At the end of September our services in Swansea step forward with full provision of a new bus service from the new Bay Campus of Swansea University and the traditional campus at Singleton. More brand new buses will be arriving in the autumn to enhance these services.
In the past two years, over £14 million has been invested in the bus fleet of First Cymru. Never before have so many brand new buses entered service, with many mid life buses being refurbished with new seats, to bring them up to the standard of the new buses.
We look forward to welcoming more than 4,000 new students to the city and meeting their transport needs as well as continuing to provide services for existing students, staff and workers.
It is great to see strong economic development taking place in the city.
We look to the future with confidence.
