Newport Transport - Wednesday, May 15, 2019


As the principal bus operator in the city of Newport, we are delighted to announce the release of free personal on-board entertainment on all our main bus routes. Newport Bus vehicles are now equipped with the Bustle Entertainment platform!

Thanks to an update of our on-board Wi-Fi system, Newport Bus can now offer passengers with free access to audio and visual entertainment, such as e-books, audiobooks, podcasts, magazines and games.

The system is simple, with the entertainment platform appearing automatically on the login screen when passengers connect to the on-board Newport-Wifi using their mobile device, phones or laptops.

From the main page, the customer can choose from a selection of e-books, audio books and podcasts as well as browse magazines or play games. They can come back to the portal and their chosen activity later too, by simply entering while connected to the on-board WiFi hotspot. The content is managed by a third-party company is renewed every 3 months. Passengers have also the option to simply go online by selecting the Go Online button.

And, there’s no need to create an account or download an app to take advantage of this!

As Morgan Stevens, our Director of Delivery explains:” A bus journey to work or school is becoming more than just a journey, but a time to unwind and relax, especially on the extended routes of Cardiff, Cwmbran and Chepstow.”

We’re delighted to be able to bring a free entertainment package to our customers. At Newport Bus, we always strive to deliver the best journey experience to the people of Newport and the surrounding communities.
