From Thursday 26th of March, we will operate a special bus timetable from 07:00 to 19:00 and no Sunday service due to a significant reduction in demand and ongoing staff availability since the UK Government detailed further emergency measures.

We will also enforce strict social distancing measures on our services. Until further notice driving staff will only allow 50% of the seating capacity to be utilized. We ask customers not to sit together and to refrain from using the seats directly behind the driver to assist reducing the risk of spreading the virus.
Newport Bus will also carry on with offering FREE alternative transport to NHS and emergency services personnel who live in Newport and Cwmbran where the
bus service times do not suit, again offering FREE travel. Those who need to use our alternative travel arrangements can get in touch, providing a
telephone number, pick up point, place of work and shift times either via email to our dedicated email address firstname.lastname@example.org or phone on 01633 211 202. Free travel is achieved simply by showing their NHS or emergency services ID badge at time of boarding
The travel centre and the head office remains closed to the public. Our phone line is open 8:00 till 4:00 on 01633 263 200.
