The only commercial bus service operating in Pembrokeshire on a Sunday is to cease.
The 302 service between Haverfordwest and Milford Haven will stop after this weekend (Sunday, August 31st) as the operator, WH Collins and Co. Limited, has had its Operator’s Licence withdrawn by the Traffic Commissioner following a public inquiry.
WH Collins has been operating the service commercially following the withdrawal of the preceding Silcox service which ceased when Pembrokeshire County Council were no longer able to provide a subsidy.
The subsidy was withdrawn because of a reduction in funding from Welsh Government.
Since receiving confirmation of the news relating to WH Collins, the Council has made strenuous efforts to engage with other local operators with regard to providing a Haverfordwest to Milford Haven Sunday service.
However, with no possibility of subsidy, the council has been unable to convince any other local operator to run a replacement commercial bus.
Contractors have been found to operate the 19 school bus routes previously operated by WH Collins.
