Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

Some major changes and ;proposals made during 1981-82i Bus arid coach services • South Wales Transport, National Welsh and Bristol Omnibus introduced Expresswest which uses the motorway links between Bristol, Newport, Cardiff and Swansea and which provide regular daily through services to Carmarthen, Tenby, Pembroke and Haverfordwest.

• Ma rchwood Motorways, in the Haverfordwest area, ceased to operate and the routes were immediately taken over by Richards Bros and Cleddau.

• National Express revised its network, providing a greater choice of services, combined with Expresswest, to the larger centres, but deleting Cardigan, Newcastle Emlyn and Ammanford from the network. The county council arranged for a replacement service from Cardigan and Newcastle Emlyn to link that area to the new network.

Supplementary services • Proposals for a postbus in the Newcastle Emlyn area are being investigated with the Post Office.

• More than half of the Country Cars Schemes have now been introduced, and it is anticipated that all Dyfed will be covered by mid 1983.

Passenger facilities • Ammanford bus station was opened by the Dinefwr Borough Council, with financial assistance from the county council.

• Work was completed at Finch's Square, Cardigan, to improve bus turning and terminal arrangements.

0 Carmarthen District Council completed improvements at Carmarthen bus station with financial assistance from the county council.

Fares • With the general deregulation of fares control within the licensing system, several operators took that opportunity to introduce a number of smaller increases during the year instead of one large increase.

• The county council supported a low fares experiment in the Llanelli, Haverfordwest and Aberystwyth areas.
