10-Feb-2020

From Monday 17th of February 2020, the services 11 A/C, 20A/C, 42/436, X74 and 60 will have revised timetables. Below is a summary of the changes:

The changes are as follows:

Route 11 – Following our take-over of the Brynglas – Allt-Yr-Yn service last September, Newport Bus has engaged with passengers to understand whether the timetable was meeting the requirement of most passengers. As a result, the hourly service will now operate from quarter to instead of quarter past the hour from 9:00 till 17:00. This change will facilitate connections with other services at peak time. Both inbound (8:15) and outbound (17:10) services to the Civic Centre remain unchanged. Download timetable service 11

Due to regular congestion around Spytty Retail Park, Newport Bus had to make adjustment of a few minutes to some of the intermediary timing points of the services covering the retail park. The routes are 20 A/C, 42/43 and X74. The departure times from Newport Bus Station and the frequency remain unchanged. The Glan Llyn estate will benefit from one extra morning service towards Chepstow at 7:30. Download timetable Service 20. Download timetable Service 42/43. Download timetable Service X74.

The Route 60 Newport to Monmouth via Caerleon, Usk and Raglan has also been subject to adjustments to maintain timetable reliability. Most changes are minor adjustments of a few minutes, earlier or later at intermediary timing points. The main change is the addition of a new service at 14:05 from Newport Bus Station Monday to Friday. The afternoon school service has also been replaced with an all-year-round service at 16:35.

Newport Bus endeavours to provide timetables for its services that meet passenger needs, traffic and commercial obligations. Morgan Stevens, Operations Director at Newport Bus comments: “We trust that these timetable adjustments will prove useful to our passengers and will assist with journey planning. We, at Newport Bus, are aware of the difficulties in keeping the bus running on time due to congestions, accidents and other delays and are working tirelessly to deliver an effective bus service to the city of Newport. It is in everyone’s interest that bus travel becomes a method of choice and for that, it needs to be made easy and relevant to the passengers.”

All timetables are available for download here on our website and timetable leaflets are available from the travel centre and the bus depot from the 10th of February.
