Message from the Managing Director
Our new vehicles on service X2 and 63 at Bridgend have been very well received and certainly enhance the journey on both of these routes. More new buses are due for the Bridgend and Port Talbot areas before the end of the year, along with some new vehicles for the Swansea Park and Ride services which we run in partnership with Swansea Council.
Our Greyhound service to Bristol Airport from Swansea, Cardiff and Newport has had a busy summer and we hope to welcome more new customers as the colleges and universities start the new academic year. With the Christmas Shopping season on the horizon, Greyhound will again come into its own for shopping in Cardiff and Bristol, or for those spending the festive season overseas, flying from Bristol Airport. Advanced bookings can be made on www.greyhounduk.com
We now also have a new srvice from Cardiff Bus Station to Cardiff Airport (service T9) which is run in conjunction with the Welsh Assembly Government. The service runs every 20 minutes, providing an easy interchange with Greyhound at Cardiff.
We are currently working to improve a number of services around the area.
- Improved frequency on services 31-33 to East Swansea
- Improved frequency on service 159 (Swansea to Neath)
- Improved frequency on services to Nanymoel and Blaengarw
- New Sunday services on X13 (Ammanford to Swansea) and 17 (Gowerton to Swansea)
We are also looking at making significant improvements to our interurban services, such as those from Carmarthen and Llanelli to Swansea and Ammanford to Swansea.
