It is suggested that a bus service be introduced from Penarth centre to Cardiff centre via the Barrage. Makes sense in terms of reducing journey times. It's suggested that electric buses be used which is also a good idea. Naturally, there is a winging poster complaining that he doesn't want to see such a service because it would spoil the Barrage. Oh well!!
Where are you reporting this from? Sounds interesting.
As I understand it, this would be a 'new' service. In these days of 'Value For money', can we afford to support 'less utilised routes' even with 'smaller clipper type' buses? (I am assuming that this new route would be 'less utilised'?)
Well I for one would prefer it to a boat ride (or longish walk) and then a steep hike up the hill, which is currently the only way to get to Penarth from the Bay unless you want to get a bus into central Cardiff and back out again. But it's going to take a while for most people to see the Bay as a residential area as well as a tourist magnet/entertainment hub.
I don't know a lot about buses apart from riding in them. Are they so unpowered to make going up a hill impossible?
