New X74 Service Launches Monday 6th March


Newport Bus is launching a new express-style bus service linking key towns in south Monmouthshire to Newport.

The new hourly service will connect Chepstow, Caldicot and Magor to the city with journey times being reduced thanks to the route’s limited number of stops. The X74 service is an expansion of Newport Bus’ network in the county where it already provides a number of important rural services. It will operate from 06.10 until 20.00 from Monday to Friday with a reduced service on Saturdays.

Explaining more about the new service Morgan Stevens, Operations Director, said: “We have engaged very closely with our customers in Monmouthshire to learn more about their views regarding the kinds of bus services they would like. We realised a more express-style service that gave people a quicker route to Newport and the opposite way to south Monmouthshire was important and this has been the driver behind the new service.

“With smartcard technology and free wi-fi on our buses the service is great for both commuters and leisure travellers and is part of our commitment to our customers to continue investing in our services and bus fleet as much as we can.”

The X74 service launches on Monday, March 6. For the X74 timetable, and other service in the area click HERE.
