      sue mitchell What an excellent idea. We have plans re transport up to outlying places of work that are just off the transport map, that would be so useful to new start-up businesses up in the hills above Mytholmroyd and Cragg Vale.

    Peter Roberts: I guess that many will know that the first connecting bus service operated by a rail company was the GWR in 1903 from Helston station to The Lizard in Cornwall.   Question - where and when was the first GWR motor bus service in Wales?

    Rebecca Catterall: We funded a bus link to a local attraction a few years ago as a pilot. The bus only ran once a day, Mon-Fri meeting a key train at Gunnislake on the Tamar Valley Line, and only for the school summer holidays so on total a mere 6 weeks. In that time though...  more

    Neil Buxton: No particular examples to give just now but I think there's a real opportunity for community transport here, especially in less densely populated areas.....
