Bus Pass for 0ver sixties: You can download an application form here
The over sixties bus pass is free of charge, and can be used on any bus in Wales, and on the Conwy Valley Railway line, from Llandudno Junction to Blaenau Ffestiniog.
The no.19 bus serves Rowen / Conwy / Llandudno and Llanrwst / Betws y Coed. See http://llewjonesinternational.co.uk/ for the current timetable.
Llew Jones International, Llanrwst took over the no. 19 bus service in May 2016. Here are some local comments, received by us:
“We use the no. 19 regularly. It stops near our house in Pontwgan and so far we have travelled to Conwy, Gyffin and Llandudno, and intend to go the other direction soon. The 23.10 from Conwy means we can get back from the Folk Club in Conwy, without having to drive. All in all, it is a brilliant service which we really appreciate”. J and C.D.
“My boys use the no. 19 regularly to get to from Llanrwst for school and other activities. It would make their lives much easier if the bus leaving Ysgol Dyffryn Conwy at 3.30pm cam through Rowen rather than Ty’n y Groes. At the moment they have to walk home from Hen Efail as I am at work at that time”. P.W.
“During the school holidays I go on the 13.39 bus to Conwy to see my friends, and I come home on the 17.35. It’s a very good service”. R. G, aged 12.
“It’s a brilliant service. The drivers are so helpful and the timekeeping is very good”. AL.
“I use the 9.09 bus to go shopping in Conwy and Llandudno, and I meet my sister for lunch. I come home on the bus arriving in Rowen at 14.03. The next bus arrives at 16.23. I would really like a bus arriving in Rowen at about 3pm”. P. G.
“I live in Deganwy and I keep my horse near Pontwgan. I come on the bus several times a week to visit my horse. It’s very convenient for me”. Bus user
“My wife has used the service to and from Henryd several times by now, especially to take the grandchildren about, now the summer holidays are here. She’s even managed to press gang me into assisting on a few outings. It seems very popular and the drivers are very helpful and obliging”. G. E.
“My cleaner uses the no. 19 to get here to work, without it she would be unable to”. S. T.
“I use the bus to go to Conwy then walk to the leisure centre at Llandudno Junction for the gym or an exercise class. There’s enough time to shop in Conwy or maybe a coffee before catching the bus back. It’s much easier than trying to park in Conwy during the summer. Although I can catch the bus back from work in Llandudno, I can’t use it to get to work, as the first bus through Rowen doesn’t arrive until nearly 10am. Apart from that, a good and reasonably priced service”. C. M.
“The bus drivers are always very courteous when we pass them on our horses”. J. B.
“The bus connection at Llandudno Junction railway station with trains to and from Chester is very useful”. P.M.
“We caught the No. 19 bus from Rowen to Conwy, then the No. 5 bus to Abergwyngregyn. We walked back to Rowen through Bwlch y Ddeufaen, and stopped for a drink at the Ty Gwyn. Great walk and a lovely day out. Well recommended”. J.M.
