Wheels to Work Bikes Arrive
Bridgend Community Transports “Wheels to Work” project has just takendelivery of 6 new Honda Scooters available for loan by people unable to get to work due to transport barriers. The “Wheels to Work” project, funded by the office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for South Wales, is the only scheme of its kind serving younger people living, or working, in the South Wales Police catchment area.
