The Economy, Infrastructure and Skills Committee has agreed to undertake an inquiry into the future development of Transport for Wales.
Transport for Wales (TfW) was established in 2015 as a wholly Welsh Government owned subsidiary company limited by guarantee. Its initial purpose was to procure and develop/operate the new Welsh rail franchise and Metro services on the valleys lines – a contract subsequently awarded to KeolisAmey in June 2018. “TfW Rail” services became operational on 14 October 2018.
The Welsh Government has ambitious plans for TfW and is currently considering the additional functions the organisation may take responsibility for, and developing a business case.
