THE Western Licensing Authority has

approved an application of the South Wales Transport Co.. Ltd., to pick up passengers for its Continental tours at Gloucester and Cheltenham. By doing so, a link has been. forged between the national network of express services and Continental operations. Tours run by South Wales Transport leave Swansea each Sunday for France or Switzerland, and now connect with arrivals by Associated Motorways at Cheltenham and Gloucester.

Timings are arranged so that departing passengers arrive in time to catch the Continental vehicles, and returning travellers will reach Cheltenham and Gloucester in time to board vehicles leaving for all parts of Wales, the Midlands and the West Country. in this way passengers can return home on the last day of the tour and avoid the necessity of spending art extra day away.
