Newport Transport - Tuesday, August 27, 2019

NEWPORT BUS

As part of our route improvement plan, we're delighted to announce the introduction of two new routes and amendments to its regular services to start in September 2019.

From the 2nd of September and in time for the opening of the International Convention Centre (ICC Wales) based in the grounds of the Celtic Manor Resort, Newport Bus will be running a new bus route – Route 9. This new route will depart from the bus station (stand 6) to the Coldra Court Hotel and Langstone Business Park, serving the train station, Chepstow Road and the Celtic Manor Resort. ICC Wales is expected to attract an increased number of visitors to Newport and the area. Therefore, it is important that as the main bus operator within the community, we support this fantastic facility by providing public transport for staff and visitors.

The introduction of the route 9 will also benefit the residents of Chepstow Road and more importantly the residents of Treberth estate (Bishpool), with increased services during the day of one every hour instead of every two hours.

The introduction of te new route brings changes to route 73, as it will no longer operate via Treberth Estate which will be serviced by the 9, and will operate directly to the City Centre via Chepstow Road.

Route X74 Newport – Chepstow Service will now serve Glan Llyn estate earlier and later than previously, Monday to Friday, with the first service linking the estate to the city centre departing at 07:30 instead of 11:29 and the last service departing the city centre at 17:25 instead of 14:15. The 74A/74C service remains unchanged.

Routes 42 and 43 – bus station to Spytty Retail Park via Moorland Park or Nash College will both benefit from an increased frequency to every 30 minutes from 8:00 till 18:00 weekdays, giving passengers a combined service every 15 minutes to the retail park or the city centre. Saturdays and Sundays remain unchanged.

We have also brought changes to the routes on the west of Newport. Route 34, currently operating one in the morning and one in the afternoon will be no longer be running from the 2nd of September. Route 35 and 36 remain unchanged, serving Duffryn Way, Tredegar House Drive, Pencarn Way to Celtic Springs. We will be running a prize draw on the 35 and 36 routes and further information will be provided shortly on our social media platforms and bus stops.

Newport Bus has been awarded a contract to operate bus services to both Brynglas and Allt-Yr-Yn. The new services will commence from Monday 10th September and will be numbered 11A/11C. The route 11 will be covering both areas in two opposite loops departing from the bus station (stand 13). Connection on Malpas Road will be available for passengers wishing to split their journey to go to the city centre. An early morning and late afternoon service will be in place to coincide with standard office hours for the people working in the Civic Centre district.

Morgan Stevens, Operations Director at Newport Transport explained: “The new routes and timetable improvements have been developed with the residents and people working in Newport in mind. These changes reflect our commitment to help bringing a viable and effective alternative to sustainable transport to the City of Newport.”

All timetables are available on our website - Routes and Timetables. Printed timetable leaflets can be picked up from the travel centre and the bus depot..

BRITISH TRANSPLANT GAMES 2019

 

As an all-inclusive employer, Newport Bus is delighted to be joining the Pride Cymru Parade on Saturday 24th in Cardiff.

This is a fantastic complement to our five local buses which, since the beginning of August have been proudly displaying the iconic rainbow stripes around Newport. Over the Pride Big Weekend, they will be in service taking customers to and from Cardiff.

As a large local employer, we believe that it is important to demonstrate our commitment to providing an inclusive and diverse workplace, where everyone feels at home, regardless of gender, sexuality, age or race.

Penny, one of our drivers commented: “I'm proud to be working for a company that is supporting such an important event. This is a fantastic opportunity to show South Wales how safe and exciting it can be, as well as a good promotional opportunity for our city of Newport.”

Pride Cymru in Cardiff, also called the Big Weekend, is 3 days of pure party atmosphere at Cardiff City Hall Lawns, with live music, funfair rides, stalls and entertainment for all.

The colourful parade will brighten the Cardiff streets on Saturday celebrating the importance of LGBT+ in the community and bringing thousands of people together in style.

Pride Cymru’s Big Weekend will run from Friday 23 August to Sunday 25 August, celebrating its 20th birthday. For more information visit www.pridecymru.com.

To join us in Cardiff, the 30 via Newport Road and X30 via the A48M will be running their regular timetables.
