Optare Tempo Arriva Buses Wales 550 (Aberystwyth - Aberaeron - New Quay - Aberporth - Cardigan) 5 YJ55BKG, YJ55BKK, YJ55BKL, YJ55BKN, YJ06YRY Withdrawn from service alongside withdrawal of TrawsCambria X40 and Arriva's half of service 550 - YJ55BKN and YJ06YRY have since joined Richards Bros' fleet (one in Richards Bros livery, the other in an unbranded form of TrawsCymru livery)
Optare Tempo Image Not Available Arriva Buses Wales X40 (Aberystwyth - Aberaeron - Lampeter - Pencader - Carmarthen) 3 YJ55BKO, YJ55BKU, YJ55BKV Withdrawn from service alongside withdrawal of TrawsCambria X40 and Arriva's half of service 550
Optare Tempo Image Not Available First Cymru X40 (Aberystwyth - Aberaeron - Lampeter - Pencader - Carmarthen) 3 YJ55BJE, YJ55BJF, YJ55BJK Transferred to Arriva (YJ55BJE & BY55BJF) and Richards Bros (YJ55BJK, possibly via Arriva). The transfer of YJ55BJK to Richards may have been because of them taking over 550 south of Synod Inn. None of these three vehicles now carry route branding, and YJ55BJF has possibly been scrapped due to fire damage.
Optare Tempo Arriva Buses Wales X40 (Aberystwyth - Aberaeron - Lampeter - Pencader - Carmarthen - Swansea - Cardiff) 2 YJ06YRO, YJ06YRZ Longer than the vehicles for 550 and the other X40 vehicles. Fitted with tables, power sockets, extra luggage racks and leather (or fake leather) seat covers. These buses were withdrawn from service when the X40 ceased operating, but by the end of 2012 had reapeared in a new livery (an unbranded version of TrawsCymru) now working for Richards Bros
Optare Tempo Richards Bros X50 (Aberystwyth - Aberaeron - Cardigan) 2 YJ55BKE, YJ55BKF Like the X40 Cardiff vehicles, these are longer than the vehicles for 550 and the other X40 vehicles. However, unlike the X40 vehicles for the Cardiff trips, the X50 pair of Tempos have the same interior and number of seats as the buses for 550 and Carmarthen X40s. This has resulted in greater legroom, making them more comfortable. Despite the X50 branding, the X50 service seemed (in late 2012) to be mostly operated using the unbranded TrawsCymru liveried YJ06YRO and YJ06YRZ.
Optare Tempo Stagecoach Route 704 3 YJ55YFY, YJ55YFZ, YJ55YGC These buses have been relivered as part of the rebranding to TrawsCymru, although they have a slightly less messy version of the livery without the silver areas (which are white on these vehicles)
Optare Tempo Image Not Available Stagecoach TrawsCymru - Route T4 6 YJ61MMA, YJ61MME, YJ61MMF, YJ61MMO, YJ61MMU, YJ61MMV
Optare Tempo Image Not Available Unknown TrawsCymru 6 Unknown New fleet of 6 Optare Tempos, ordered for TC1 Aberystwyth - Carmarthen. These buses have not yet been seen in service due to Arriva's removal of the TrawsCambria X40 Aberystwyth - Carmarthen and subsequent blocking of the route with their own CymruExpress services, preventing a Traws service from being reintroduced.

Famous quotes containing the word vehicles:

    Only by the supernatural is a man strong; nothing is so weak as an egotist. Nothing is mightier than we, when we are vehicles of a truth before which the state and the individual are alike ephemeral.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Television programming for children need not be saccharine or insipid in order to give to violence its proper balance in the scheme of things.... But as an endless diet for the sake of excitement and sensation in stories whose plots are vehicles for killing and torture and little more, it is not healthy for young children. Unfamiliar as yet with the full story of human response, they are being misled when they are offered perversion before they have fully learned what is sound.
    Dorothy H. Cohen (20th century)
