Higher Frequency on Route 15 and 16 - Bettws

Newport Transport - Monday, June 03, 2019

We’ve listened to your feedback, and from the 9th of June 2019, there will be a higher frequency of buses coming your way linking the City Centre and Bettws. With a bus every 7 or 8 minutes throughout the day, it makes it a lot simpler for you to travel back and forth to the city centre, for work or leisure.

Read on to find out about the changes and our thanks to you our loyal customers.

The routes remain the same with the 15 service going anti-clockwise and the 16 service clockwise along Monnow Way. However, we’ll be operating each service every 15 minutes for most of the day, giving you the option to travel with the 15 or 16 service from Monnow Way every 7 or 8 minutes.

The main improvements to the schedule are summarised below:

Monday to Friday

Service No. Current service From June 9, 2019
15 Every 20 minutes from 9:45 till 14:05 (from the bus station Every 15 minutes from 7:32 till 18:02 (from the bus station)
16 Every 20 minutes from 9:55 till 14:15 (from the bus station) Every 15 minutes from 7:25 till 18:07 (from the bus station)

16 Every 20 minutes from 10:15 till 14:15 (from the bus station) Every 15 minutes from 7:25 till 17:55 (from the bus station)

Your early mornings, evenings and Sunday services remain unchanged.

At Newport Bus, we are committed to working with Newport communities and would like to say thank you for your loyalty and input given.



Therefore, to celebrate the launch of the new improved bus timetable for the Bettws services, we will be running a prize draw for the bus users who purchase their tickets (or swipe their smartcards!) on the 15 and 16 bus routes between Monday 10 and Saturday 15, June. You just need to keep your bus tickets safe!

The draw will take place on Wednesday 19 June. We will electronically select 5 winning ticket numbers from the tickets sold during that period. The 5 winning tickets will be announced on our social media platforms, Facebook and Twitter, and displayed in our Travel Centre in Friars Walk. Don’t forget to follow us - Facebook and Twitter

What are the prizes?
⦁ One-month free bus transport – start date of your choice
⦁ A day trip (coach only) for up to a family of four – to be chosen from our day trip Spring/Summer and Autumn/Winter 2019 programmes
⦁ Three Freedom cards pre-loaded with £10.00 of credit.

Where do I get the new timetable?
The new timetable leaflets will be available at our Travel Centre in Friars Walk or our depot at 160 Corporation Road, Newport from the 1st of June. You can also download the new timetable to your mobile device from our website.

We're looking forward to seeing you on our buses.
