At an event held in Llandysul to launch the LPY Dolen Teifi Community Transport project, Adam Price MS lauded the organisation’s “innovative” approach to solve the issue of rural isolation in some of our communities.

The Dolen Teifi Project has secured a multitude of electric vehicles, to be manned by community volunteers, that will increase travel opportunities for people in the Llandysul and Pontweli area.

Dolen Teifi’s fleet now includes two seven-seater MPVs, three all-purpose electric cars that can accommodate wheelchair users, and even five electric bicycles that local residents can use. This is then coupled with new EV charge points in the area for these vehicles.

Adam Price MS said “It is wonderful to see such an innovative solution to combat the isolation that so many people in our rural communities can feel in this day and age.

"You then add the added dimension of reducing carbon emissions, and this project showcases some of the best practice possible for connecting our rural communities whilst maintaining our environmental ambitions here in Wales. I wish Dolen Teifi all the best as they proceed with this fantastic project.”
