Bettisfield is ‘Off the map’ as far as mainstream bus companies are concerned. If you don’t have your own transport and want to travel out of the village then you will have to walk but there are signs of change.
Monday Market Service
A new servie has started from Bettisfield. The 45F is a ‘Hopandstopper’ that runs every Monday from Cadney Lane bus stop at 10.00am to Wrexham Bus Station, returning at 1.15 pm. Monday is market day in Wrexham so this is a useful service. The service connects Bettisfield, Horseman’s Green, Tallan Green, Worthenbury and Wrexham.
NS Wheelers Community Bus Project

An Opportunity Knocks!!!
If you have a kayak or inflatable lilo you could use the canal to get to Ellesmere or Whitchurch along the Llangollen canal. Perhaps some enterprising person could start up a water taxi service?
