Message from the General Manager
Welcome to the First Cymru website. Here, you will find all the familiar service and fares information to help you plan your journey.
First, thank you for your patience during the recent spell of bad weather. It was not an easy time for us and on several occasions we were forced to cancel services in the interest of safety to our customers, staff and other road users. We hope that you found our series of service updates on this site and on social media of assistance and that it minimised the obvious inconvenience. In the event of more severe weather, First will make every effort to keep local bus services running as long as it is safe to do so. As ever, updates will be posted on this website as soon as we are aware of them. Information can also be obtained by calling Traveline Cymru on 0871 200 22 33 (Daily 0700-2200) or by tuning to your local radio station.
Great news is that we shall shortly be launching our new Greyhound service to Bristol Airport from Swansea, Cardiff and Newport and which also will serve the University of the West of England and Bristol City Centre. The recently-built Cabot Circus is an ideal location for shopping, as of course is Cardiff; the latter will continue to be served by this ever popular service. Advanced bookings can be made on www.greyhounduk.com
Spring (we hope!) is just around the corner and with it comes the opportunity for days out at popular destinations across South Wales. Details of the services which run to attractions such as Margam Park, Mumbles, the Gower Coast and Porthcawl can all be found in these pages, together with details of our value-for-money FirstDay tickets.
