Christmas 2021 will be magical with and at Newport Transport

Complementing the free bus travel initiative of Newport City Council, Newport Transport is delighted to present you with our Christmas themed double-decker bus!

Designed by the children of St Andrews Primary School in Newport, and our supplier Pennine Signs, our Christmas double-decker bus will be in service during the whole of December, and we at Newport Bus hope it will bring a little bit of cheer and joy to everyone. Every pupil at St Andrew’s has been included in its design – from the snowmen of the nursery classes to the reindeer of Year 6 pupils. 

And that’s not all! Santa will also be driving some of the buses in the run up to Christmas. Thanks to five of our wonderful drivers, Santa will be driving buses around the city, bringing a smile to children and adults alike. 

These last 18 months have been difficult and arduous for many. However, the bus services, albeit reduced have remained present on the streets of Newport, providing safe and clean transportation to all users. Newport Transport would also like to say thank you to our drivers who have put themselves in front of the public during a global pandemic and all of our support staff, by throwing a Christmas party for our employees' children and making our annual Christmas raffle, in support of Newport Mind exceptional this year. 

Thank you to our passengers for your continued support, understanding and respect of the COVID-safety guidelines. Hope you enjoy our Chrismassy bus as much as the children did.
