Service 54 will also be withdrawn, however, service 52 will extend to Cyncoed to replace this withdrawn service, and service 9C will be introduced to serve Channel View.
A Cardiff Bus spokesman reminded customers to check all route and timetable changes before travelling.
He said: “We are set to introduce a number of timetable and route changes which will affect customers across our network.
“We appreciate that any change could be an inconvenience, but we would like to reassure our customers that we have thoroughly assessed all services. We are pleased that Cardiff Council and the Vale of Glamorgan Council were able to secure funding to continue operating some routes that would otherwise be withdrawn.
“We would encourage all our customers to check revised timetable and route details before travelling, as they will be subject to change from the 31st.
“Details of all our changes can be found via our website at www.cardiffbus.com, via our new travel centre on Westgate Street, or via our social media channels on Facebook and Twitter.”
