C18 Bargoed – Gilfach Estate – Bargoed (PDF) (From 5 November 2017)

On 8 September, the Council were given notice by Stagecoach in South Wales that they will no longer provide the daytime service on route C18 after operation on Saturday 4 November.  Since then the Council has worked with other operators to provide a replacement service.

From Monday 6 November 2017 route C18 will be provided by N.A.T Group on a fully commercial basis. The timetable will be hourly with all journeys operating via Heol Fargoed. Unfortunately Hillside Park will no longer be served.

From the same date, most buses on route X38 will also be amended to serve via Gilfach Estate on journeys from Bargoed to Pontypridd. Buses will operate from Bargoed Interchange via Bargoed Town Centre, McDonnell Road, Moorland Road, Western Drive, St. Mary Street and Cross Street and re-join the existing route at Park Place to continue to Pontypridd.

The timetable of routes C18 & X38 have been designed so that buses depart Bargoed approximately 30 minutes apart.

Journeys at 1905 & 2105 will continue to be provided by Stagecoach. Passengers who buy a return ticket from N.A.T. Group earlier in the day will be able to use it on these journeys.

The Sunday service already provided by N.A.T. Group remains unchanged.
