Cardiff Bus services provide access to mass vaccination centres

Cardiff Bus has increased its services across its network from 21st March, and as a result, has increased frequency to Cardiff and Barry mass vaccination centres in a bid to provide access to as many people as possible.

For the Bayside Mass Vaccination Centre services 9, 13, and X45 will stop on Olympian Way, on the opposite side of the road to the centre.

Service 9 will run every 20 minutes Monday to Friday, and every 30 minutes Saturdays & Sundays.  Service 13 will run every hour to the Sports Village Monday to Friday. Service X45 will run on a half hourly basis Monday to Friday. These services operate across the city, offering a convenient and direct link from areas in the west, north and east of Cardiff

Cardiff and Vale Therapy Centre in Splott will be accessible via routes 1, 2, and 11.

Service 11 will stop on Splott Road near the Therapy Centre with busses running every 30 minutes Monday to Saturday, and on an hourly basis on Sundays. Services 1 and 2 will run on an hourly basis Monday to Friday.

To access the Pentwyn Leisure Centre, customers can use services 51, 57, and 58.

Service 58 will run on a half hourly basis Monday to Saturday, and hourly on Sundays. Service 57 will run on a half hourly basis Monday to Saturday, and hourly on Sundays. Combined with service 58, there is a bus every 15 minutes for much of the daytime. Two early morning journeys will run on service 51 on weekdays.

Services 95, 97, and 97A will provide access to Holm View Centre, Barry.

Services 97 and 97A have recently been extended to operate later into the evenings Mondays to Saturdays to align with the opening and closing of the centre, and these changes were introduced earlier in the year when the centre began administering vaccines.

Full information on service changes can be viewed on cardiffbus.com

Customers should not travel to a vaccination centre without an appointment and are reminded that face coverings are mandatory on buses and should cover your nose and mouth for the whole journey. Unless exempt, customers must always wear a face covering whilst travelling.

Commercial Director Gareth Stevens said: “We are extremely proud of the part our services and our drivers will play in providing travel to the mass vaccination centres across our network, further underscoring how Cardiff Bus are a key part of everyday life in our City and The Vale of Glamorgan”

“We ask that customers do not travel to any of the centres without an appointment and continue to follow our safety guidelines whilst travelling.

“We would also encourage customers to check the revised timetable and route details before travelling.

“Please check our website, social media and app for all the latest travel news and information.”
