Fishguard’s three-year government-funded service is to continue well past the three trial years announced in 2011. Arriva Trains Wales has published it’s May-December 2014 timetable, taking the service well into a fourth year – with no changes to the present pattern of seven trains each way, Monday-Saturday.
Fishguard Trains understands that Arriva has receive no notification to the contrary from Welsh Government. The new timetable therefore went to press on a no-change basis. The trial service was launched in September 2011, and is due to end (and be reviewed) this coming September. And with no news to the contrary from our government, Arriva has concluded, “We think the service will continue as at present”.
Fishguard Trains has of course asked for confirmation and clarification from Welsh Government – still awaited at press time.
But if confirmed, this news will be both surprising and hugely welcome in the twin towns.
