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:

Newport Bus - Helping to save the planet

Dezines Internet - Wednesday, March 11, 2015

Newport Bus are very pleased to be using a large array of solar panels on the roof of our bus depot in Corporation road, Newport - to help offset our carbon footprint, generate electricity for our workshops and offices, and provide energy back to the National Grid which we are paid for, reducing our overheads further.


This image taken in February 2015 by our web development agency Dezines Internet Solutions Limited - clearly shows the size of our solar panel bank, positioned on the south facing section of the workshop roof.

We will be adding scientific data to this blog entry in due course, to evidence the electricity our panels generate.
