GOOD NEWS - NEW BUS SERVICE FOR MAESYDRE RESIDENTS: In the summer of 2016 the GHA Bus Company ceased trading leaving Maesydre Ward residents who are non-car owners, elderly and or infirm feeling isolated with no direct through bus services whatsoever to access the town centre despite their close proximity to it.  Acton Community Councillors have been proactive in voicing concerns about the isolation and inequality for these residents.

It is hoped that this service will support residents and the local economy in bringing more people into the Town Centre. The service will be operated by Valentines Travel solutions who are a local company based in Wrexham.

There are two services from Wrexham Bus Station, operating Monday to Saturday between 0930 and 1750.

Town Link 1 will serve Rhosnesni Lane, Maesydre, Market Street, Eagles Meadow, High Street and Island Green.
