A WYCA officer told a previous planning meeting: “ This is looking to be an all-electric bus service, which is obviously a huge positive.

“It is affordable and the benefits will be a significant increase in bus patronage of 1,500 users a day.”

It is hoped construction will be completed in September 2020.

The council said: "Park & Rides have been very successful, with existing sites removing over 9,000 cars from city centre roads every week."
