PARENTS at a Tywyn school were left confused and angry after a bus service did not run on Monday.

It led to fears that an axing of funding for a school bus route which runs to the Sandilands estate and the sea-front serving Ysgol Penybryn had already been given the go-ahead, despite Gwynedd Council telling the Cambrian News that no decision had been taken.

Gwynedd Council said that, while one of the two school buses has come to an end, the other will continue until the end of the school year.

The public service 528 bus did not run as expected on Monday, leaving parents and children stranded as buses were full. Parent of two children at the school and a Tywyn town councillor, Dan Wyre, said that the scene at the school was “chaos”, with many children arriving late.

Gwynedd Council apologised for “any inconvenience caused”.

“It seems the bus service has stopped,” Cllr Wyre told the Cambrian News on Monday morning. “There are a lot of confused and angry parents today. Nobody has been told anything about what is going on.”
