The Beacons Bus

It's finally sunny and warm, and people are coming to the Brecon Beacons and surrounding areas (like Hay) to go walking - so of course, Powys County Council have cut the Beacons Bus to save money.
The bus was originally introduced to make it easier to see the area without using a car, and has been operating over the May to September period, on Sundays and Bank Holidays. It's not going to be running in future. Neither is the Offa's Dyke Flyer, which went up to places like Longtown.
The Sunday 39A bus service was designed to link up with the Beacons Bus, and it was used by backpackers. The Sunday service is irregular anyway, and any loss of passengers may put that route in jeopardy too. At the moment, Herefordshire County Council, which provide part of the subsidy for the route, are holding a consultation, which is open until April 21st. It can be found at
