10 October 2013 2013 UK Bus Awards - Lloyds Coaches are finalists!

We are pleased to announce that Lloyds Coaches are now in the final for this year's UK Bus Awards following a presentation and shortlist lunch at the Heathrow Academy, Heathrow Airport, London.  Winners of all categories to be revealed during the prestigious awards dinner at the Hilton Park Lane Hotel, London on the 19th of November, 2013.

For further details about the awards please click on the following link.

http://www.ukbusawards.org.uk/content/index.php

from 09 September 2013 Fare Increases - Monday 09 September, 2013

Fares on Powys County Council routes have risen several times over the past few years. However we have kept our fares the same for three years, even though the cost of operation has increased during this time.

By now unfortunately we have no choice but to increase fares in order to compensate for continued increase in costs.

As of Monday the 9th of September all single and day return fares will increase by approximately 3%. For example, the existing adult day return from Machynlleth to Aberystwyth will increase from £4.80 to £4.95. Our X28 Machynlleth - Aberystwyth weekly tickets will increase from £15 to £18 per adult / our Tywyn to Aberystwyth 5 day adult will increase from £25 to £26 and our Rhydypennau to Aberystwyth will increase from £9 to £10.
Our Lloyds Day will also increase from £5.60 to £5.80 per adult.  All child weekly/5 day remain at half the new adult prices, unlike other companies who already charge two thirds.

Our decision to increase fares has not been taken lightly, but has been forced upon us unfortunately by increases in operating costs outside our own control. As mentioned, we have been able to keep fares the same for three years, however we now have little choice in order to maintain the same level of service provision and quality.

Police to get free travel on Lloyds Coaches Uniformed police officers will be given free bus travel by Lloyds Coaches & other Major Bus operators in Wales to cut down on anti-social behaviour on public transport.

It is hoped that an increased police presence on buses will prevent incidents such as stone throwing at buses and aggressive behaviour.


The all-Wales scheme - was launched in Cardiff on 12th January by Tamsin Dunwoody, the WAG Deputy Minister for Economic Development and Transport
It is open to all uniformed officers and police community support officers.
It was organised by the assembly government-funded Bus Users UK.

The Bobbies on Buses scheme is supported by all four Welsh police forces. It follows a number of recent incidents involving anti-social behaviour on bus routes throughout Wales.

Wyn Lloyd said that problems on the buses in Machynlleth area are very rare indeed, but when they do happen passengers get a feelings of unease while  travelling on the bus. Passengers then suffer if  services are withdrawn following incidents like stone throwing.

"The cost to bus operators is enormous and it is the bus user who ultimately pays the cost with higher fares," he said.

"We see this scheme as the start of even better co-operation between police and bus operators and one which can give a greater feeling of security to all our bus users.

"A decent, safe and secure public transport system is one of the hallmarks of a civilised society."

He added that a better incident reporting scheme was also being implemented to assess the scale of anti-social behaviour on bus routes around Wales.

"A decent, safe and secure public transport system is one of the hallmarks of a civilised society"

"Police will be able to travel on Lloyds Buses for free"

 

January 2006

SERVICE 522 (Machynlleth - Newtown) : 9th January 2006 revised timetable introduced 

Passengers are advised that from Monday January 9th 2006 Powys County Council & Lloyds Coaches have introduced a revised timetable on 522 Newtown to Machynlleth service in order to provide connections at Newtown with the newTrawsCambria service 704 to/from Brecon.

Raising the Tempo in the heart of Wales

The first of Optare’s new generation Tempo single deck buses has entered service with a fast-emerging operator based in the heart of Wales and already it’s creating a good impression with passengers and drivers.

Lloyds Coaches of Machynlleth, Powys, has added the fully integral Tempo to its ten-vehicle fleet. It’s the first new bus to be acquired by the four-year-old company and was acquired through Powys County Council’s innovative tendering mechanisms. The Tempo is operating on  service 522 between Machynlleth and Newtown and covers the hour-long journey four times a day in each direction, six days a week.

"We chose the Tempo primarily because of its high seating capacity of 46 plus up to 26 standees," says Wyn Lloyd, owner of Lloyds Coaches. "Its low floor and kneeling capability also make it easy for passengers to get on and off and this is particularly appreciated by some of our older passengers and young mums with small children. And once on board, the flat floor and well-placed handrails assist safe movement.

"Passengers tell us that the seats are very comfortable and they like the bright, modern colour scheme. The use of uplighting and the excellent ventilation system provide a pleasant environment in which to travel and both passengers and drivers have commented on the low internal noise level and the smooth ride. It’s also a modern and stylish-looking bus, and this helps to create a good image for our growing business.

Lloyds Coaches’ new Tempo is 12.6 metre long model  the longest of the four lengths available. It has 46 Estaban Civic V0 seats and bonded, tinted side windows with ventilation hoppers. The suspension uses a two-bag air system on the front axle and a four-bag system on the rear for a smooth ride. Front kneeling is electronically controlled and the bus can return to ride height in just four seconds, reducing bus stop dwell times to a minimum.
