Ruthin fflecsi 33 service

The bookable Ruthin Fflecsi 33 service is an improved bus service for Ruthin town and villages. It’s available from Monday to Friday between 9:30am and 2:30pm and replaces the previous irregular and limited bus services during these times.

To book, download the Fflecsi app from your app store or telephone 0300 234 0300.

You need to book ahead of your travel. You may book a single or a return journey, up to one month in advance. You may also book a recurring journey.

You cannot book less than one hour before you hope to travel, but to guarantee the journey you want, we strongly recommend you book as early as you can. You can book a departure time or, if you have an appointment, you can try for an arrival time. Fflecsi then works by using software to organise journeys as appropriately as possible, to match each passenger’s needs. If you use the app or mobile phone to book, Fflecsi will let you know if there are any delays.

Fflecsi is able to drop you in the town centre or at other locations (where it’s safe to do so) - locations such as the Leisure Centre, Aldi, Lôn Parcwr and Tesco, which are otherwise inaccessible by a main, timetabled service bus.

Fflecsi Ruthin 33 is available for nearly all residential areas of Ruthin and for:

  • Bontuchel
  • Clawddnewydd
  • Clocaenog
  • Cyffylliog
  • Derwen,
  • Llanelidan
  • Graigfechan
  • Pentrecelyn

We have excluded those villages in the Ruthin area that have a good bus service. Although you can use Fflecsi to travel from the above villages, for example to Llanfair and Pwllglas, Fflecsi does not offer a service for Llanfair or Pwllglas to and from Ruthin itself: residents of Llanfair and Pwllglas must instead use main bus services X51 and 55.

You will be told where to board your bus. The service is more door-to-door than the previous bus services but you may be asked to walk to a suitable boarding point.

There is one fixed journey per day from Clawddnewydd (8:45am); Clocaenog (8:49am); Cyffylliog (9:01am) and Bontuchel (9:06am) to arrive Ruthin at 9:15am. After that, all journeys need to be booked.
