Neath Port Talbot Council has announced a new bus route that will enable those who rely on public transport to pay their respects to loved ones at Margam Crematorium.

The service will run once a week, therefore is intended to give residents without their own transport the chance to visit family memorials as opposed to being used to attend funeral services.

The new service has been added following feedback from residents.

Starting on Thursday 2nd May 2024, Ridgeways Coaches will operate a service every Thursday, departing from Port Talbot Bus Station at 9:45am and arriving at 10am. The bus will serve all designated bus stops along the route including Port Talbot Transport Hub, Talbot Road, Taibach, and Margam. The return journey from the crematorium will leave at 10:45am and stop at the same locations.

Councillor Wyndham Griffiths, Cabinet Member for Strategic Planning, Transport & Connectivity, said: “We are pleased to be able to launch this new bus service to Margam Crematorium, which directly addresses the feedback we have had from our residents.

“We understand the importance of accessibility, particularly for those relying on public transport, and this service reflects our commitment to meeting the needs of our communities.”
