Preseli Rural Transport Association -

Cardi Bach

The Cardi Bach operated up to 30th September 2014 (the Cardi Bach was supported by the RDP and the current programme is reaching its conclusion).


The County Council recognises the contribution that the service has made to the local community and if resources were available would have wished to continue the service beyond the conclusion of the RDP project. Whilst the Cardi Bach has proved to be popular, with 5,645 passengers in the 12 months, the fare income was significantly less than the operating costs of the service which meant that the service was not self-sustaining. Its future operation and support was also set against a backdrop of budgetary cuts facing the local authority and public sector organisations in general.

Please note that the County Council is exploring ways in which a community transport service in the area can be provided in the future. Further information will be made available on the web site as matters progress.

The Cardi Bach was supported by:

  • Ceredigion County Council
  • Natural Resources Wales
  • TraCC
  • The Rural Development Plan for Wales 2007-2013 which is funded by the Welsh Government and the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development.
