Timetable changes will affect services 1 & 2, 6,8 & 9, 13, 17 & 18, 21 & 23, 24, 25, 28/28A/ 28B, 30, 35, 44 & 45/ 45B, 49 & 50, 51, 52, 63/ 63A, 64, 65/ 65A, 66, 92/92B, 93, 94/ 94B, 95, 95A/ 95B, 96/96A, 97/97A, 98, X45, X59, M1, M2, M2A and M3

Residents at Channel View will benefit from extra buses in the evening, due to financial support from Cardiff Council. New service 9A will operate between Heath Hospital, the city centre and Channel View in the evenings, Mondays to Saturdays.

In addition to timetable changes, the 28/28A/28B route in Llanishen will be changing too from 1st September buses will travel via Fidlas Road and Ty Glas Avenue between Rhydypennau crossroads and Fishguard Road rather than Heathwood Road and Crystal Glen.


Services 28, 28A and 28B will serve the length of Fishguard Road in both directions and stops on Heathwood Road will still be served by services 51 and 53.

Gareth Stevens, Operations and Commercial Director at Cardiff Bus said: ““After monitoring customer numbers and analysing results from our recent online survey, we’ve concluded that some peak 28/28A/28B journeys would be better suited to be operated by a larger bus.  To achieve this, we have had to change the route as the route around Crystal Glen is not suitable for large vehicles.Some journeys on service 44 will divert via Pensarn Road and Hendre Road instead of Brynbala Way and/or Tresign Road at school start and end times.

Service 51 will start and end on Greyfriars Road in the city centre rather than Churchill Way, while the X59 will start and end at Dumfries Place HV instead of Churchill Way and will not run via Station Terrace.

Cardiff Metropolitan University’s MetRider service M2A will be renumbered M4, whereas the M3 will operate via Senghennydd Road, Woodville Road and Crwys Road instead of Mundy Place, Lowther Road and Richmond Road.

Gareth Stevens, Operations and Commercial Director at Cardiff Bus said: “We are set to introduce a number of timetable and route improvements which will benefit customers across our network.

“We continuously monitor our network to make sure our timetables are reliable and financially sustainable.

“We would encourage all our customers to check revised timetable and route details before travelling, as they will be subject to change from 1st September.

“Details of all our changes can be found via our website at www.cardiffbus.com, via our travel centre on Westgate Street, or via our social media channels on Facebook and Twitter.”
