THE WILL be an exciting new bus on the streets of south Pembrokeshire from next month as First Cymru launch their Cymru Coaster service between Tenby and Saundersfoot.
First say that their “beastly” Euro 2 Volvo B7TL/Alexander ALX400 is a great bus for the route, and that there are no low bridges along the route they plan – so no issues for the double decker.
The bus, which is over 20 years old has been in service across the UK including in Bristol but has been completely overhauled for its new role in Pembrokeshire.
The new service is launching on Thursday 2nd June in time for the Queens Platinum Jubilee Holiday.
Its the first time that double-deckers have been in use in the county since Silcox Coaches retired their old school buses of this type in the late 1990’s.
First say they are looking forward to passengers using their “hop on hop off service from next month.”
