Coronavirus - changes to timetables

The ongoing situation caused by the Coronavirus(Covid-19) has resulted in bus operators having to review the level of service they provide. This is not just as a result of drivers and operational staff needing to self-isolate but with fewer people travelling there is also a need to reduce costs to ensure that bus services are viable in the long-term. Each company has its individual circumstances so the revised arrangements may be different between each operator.

Bus operators have worked with the Council to provide a basic level of service across the county borough to allow access to town centres, supermarkets/pharmacies as well as trying to help those who need to get to work. Unfortunately, the revised routes and timetables will mean that most people will see a reduction in frequency or a loss of some links. For others it may mean a short walk to another bus stop or shopping at a different town centre/supermarket.

Due to the unprecedented, urgent nature of the changes we have not been unable to update timetables at bus stations and stops but we are working hard to ensure we can circulate information as widely as possible. Additionally some websites, most mobile apps, text services and Google Maps will not show updated timetables for a few weeks. Up-to-date information can be found on this page or by contacting Traveline Cymru on 0800 464 0000. The Council and operators will monitor Government advice and respond accordingly. Therefore arrangements may change at short notice and passengers are asked to check before they travel.

The following timetables will apply from Monday 6 April 2020 until further notice. If a timetable is not displayed then unfortunately that service is not running at the current time. Stagecoach are currently not operating any services on Sundays. Normal Sunday service is being operated on routes provided by NAT Group.
