Additional buses and services from September

A new bus service is to be launched in Cardiff from September 28th.

There will be 5 additional buses on the new route – the 21A – which will run from the City Centre to Rhiwbina, Pantmawr, Whitchurch and the Heath Hospital.

“These latest changes are as a result of our assessment of feedback from our customers, our online consultation process and input from local representatives regarding the April service changes” said Cardiff Bus. “The recent announcement by the Welsh Government regarding changes to the funding arrangement of the All Wales Concessionary Travel Scheme has also been incorporated into these revisions”. Below is a list of how other services are affected:

Service 12 : New service off-peak Monday to Friday daytime linking Drope and Michaelston Road with Cowbridge Road West and Canton.

Services 17/18: To improve reliability a new timetable is introduced across all days of the week with main daytime frequency Mondays to Saturdays now every 6 minutes with buses given extra time to complete their journey.

Services 21/21A: The current arrangement of services will be revised and replaced with new 21, 21A, 23 and 23A as below:

21 Central Station – Rhiwbina – Pantmawr – Whitchurch – Central Station 21A Central Station – Rhiwbina – Pantmawr – Whitchurch – Heath Hospital – Rhydypenau 23 Central Station – Whitchurch – Pantmawr – Rhiwbina – Central Station 23A Rhydypenau – Heath Hospital – Whitchurch – Pantmawr – Rhiwbina – Central Station

The revised timetable provides extra buses between Pantmawr, Rhiwbina and Whitchurch and additionally between Pantmawr and the city centre via Rhiwbina off-peak Monday to Friday daytime.

Services 24/24 and 25/25A: Revised timetable across all days with existing journeys extending to/ starting from Pantmawr and Rhiwbina now showing route number 21/21A or 23/23A – see above.

Service 27: Revised timetable across all days to improve reliability with buses given extra time to complete their journey. We additionally looked at increasing the Sunday daytime frequency to every 20 minutes but after a thorough review of number of people using the service in this day we have retained the 30 minute frequency with buses given extra time to complete their journey which will make the service more reliable.

Services 28/28A/28B: Revised timetable and now all journeys will be operated using full size buses.

Service 30: Some Monday to Friday journeys will operate slightly earlier in both directions.

Services 35/36: Revised Sunday timetable with journeys now ending at Westgate Street, as per the rest of the week, and not Central Bus Station.

Services 44/44B/45/45B: Revised timetable across all days with buses given extra time to complete their journey. In Trowbridge, route 44 will operate via Tresign Road not the full length of Hendre Road and Greenway Road between Hendre Road and Willowbrook Drive and in St. Mellons both routes 44 and 45 will no longer serve Matthysens Way instead remaining on Willowbrook Drive.

Services 49/50: Minor change made to some Sunday journeys.

Service 54: Revised Sunday timetable with buses operating 20 minutes later throughout.

Services 57/58: Revised timetable across all days to improve reliability with buses given extra time to complete their journey.
