Representatives of Merthyr, Neath and Port Talbot and Swansea local authorities were meeting with Stagecoach today for talks.

Meanwhile, following Stagecoach's plan to withdraw their X55 Aberdare to Swansea service from April 22, busman Clayton Jones has applied to registernbsp; services to Swansea from April 24.

Pick-up points listed for the service starting from Pontypridd bus station are: Newtown, Mountain Ash, Cwmbach, Aberdare Bus Station, Penywaun, Hirwaun, Glynneath, Neath, and Swansea Bus Station.
