The RAC says workers in Wales are buying and running cars they can't afford as there are no other transport options to get them to 'the office'. The Welsh Government acknowledges that public transport is crucial.
– A Welsh Government spokesperson
We are aware of the financial pressures facing people in Wales. Even though our budgets have been stretched by the cuts imposed by the UK government, we are aiming to create an accessible and affordable public transport system that offers a viable alternative to the car. This is a key part of our plans to tackle poverty and create jobs.
