Under the current Rural Development Plan (RDP) programme, Mid Wales has benefited from the Tourism Amenity Investment Support Scheme (TAIS), run by Visit Wales.
TAIS is an investment fund targeting amenity projects in the tourism sector that will develop quality sustainable tourism facilities and add value to the visitor experience. A regional bid was successful in developing a £160,000 project to install 5 CGi screens along the TrawsCymru T2 corridor, including popular tourist towns Machynlleth and Aberystwyth.
As well as providing the public with up-to-date info on bus timetables, the screens will also allow the public access to Local Authority tourism web pages and promote the Welsh Government's Welsh Way Coastal Route.
This project has received funding through the Welsh Government Rural Communities - Rural Development Programme 2014-2020, which is funded by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development and the Welsh Government.
