This edition outlines schemes introduced by the Clwyd County Council over the last four years, showing how they were put into practice; it also contains a report on the development and progress of the new Air Wales service and outlines the operation of a post-bus scheme in an area of very difficult terrain. Details are given of an experiment to determine the effect of a fare reduction on bus usage and revenue. The operation of a voluntary social car service in three districts of Glyndwr is discussed. This service is designed to provide supplementary transport for rural areas ill-served by traditional forms of transport. This scheme has been expanded to form a voluntary essential car service, aimed at areas where no public transport is available, or where passengers are unable to use public transport through age or infirmity. The development of an experimental community bus scheme in the Cerrigydrudion area is described. Results show that a 50 per cent reduction in off-peak fares produced a passenger gain of 22 per cent and a revenue loss of 28 per cent. The highest increase in passengers occurred where the actual amount of the discount was largest. (TRRL)
