A new scheme offering 110,000 people aged 16-18 in Wales discounted bus travel is being launched by the First Minister in North Wales today.
Funded by the Welsh Government and developed in partnership with the bus industry and local authorities, the new scheme is designed to help young Welsh people travel to and from training and employment more cheaply.
It is vital that our young people are able to access jobs and training opportunities in Wales more easily. We recognise that travelling costs can sometimes be a barrier and this scheme aims to change that by making it easier and cheaper for 16-18 year olds to travel around Wales.
The Welsh Government has allocated £5 million to the introduction of the scheme in 2015-16, and a further £9.75 million in 2016-17.
Strong winds on A55 Britannia Bridge between Llanfair P.G. and Treborth mean there is a 30mph speed limit.
