Preseli Green Dragon Walkers Bus
The project would provide a twice weekly Dial a Ride service utilising the Preseli Green Dragon, an LPG powered 16 seater mini bus with wheelchair access. It would provide a flexible service for both residents and visitors integrating with public transport routes in Crymych and Newport and encouraging use of facilities and amenities in the area. The funding would allow us to: a) employ a driver, rather than relying on volunteers; this would ensure consistent quality of service. b) produce a guide book with full details of the service, links to public transport routes and information on places of interest, walks, and amenities in the area served by the bus. c) distribute the booklet to every household in the area and supplies to Tourist Information offices, Bed and Breakfast establishments and other providers of accommodation, pubs and other places where it can be picked up by visitors. d) guarantee continuation of the service in the medium term; this will encourage people to use the service as the service becomes better known and it can be built into passengers’ plans. The project will result in part time employment for the driver, increased use of public and community transport and encourage economic activity in the area.
