NEWPORT BUS PRIZE DRAW ROUTE 15/16

Thank you to all our passengers, especially to the travellers on route 15 and 16 who have been showing loyalty and patience while we sorted out a revised bus schedule. The results of the prize draw, which ran on route 15 and 16 between the 10th and 15th of June to say a special thanks are below. The draw was carried out by selecting electronically and at random five bus ticket numbers among all types of the tickets issued on the 15 and 16 services.

It’s been lovely to see that the new timetable has already led to an increase of 5% in the passenger numbers in just over a week. It proves that the new timetable makes it easier for people to travel in and out of Bettws. As a reminder, Newport Bus now operates the 15 and the 16 services every 15 minutes, making it a bus going around Monnow Way every 7 or 8 minutes. The timetables are available at the Travel Centre or ready for download to your devices from our website. Traveline Cymru also operates a live timetable service.

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:
