Rhondda residents warned of Christmas and New Year travel changes

3 December 2014

Rhondda residents looking to travel by public transport during the Christmas and New Year period are alerted to changes to service patterns.

Traveline Cymru is urging those looking to get out and about during the festive season to use its free transport information service to keep abreast of the latest changes.

Rhondda Cynon Taff local authority has already advised that there will be reduced services over this period, with no buses running on Christmas day or boxing day.

Laura Thomas, Marketing Officer at Traveline Cymru, said: “Whether travelling by train, bus or car, people all over the country will be wanting to be out and about over the Christmas and New Year period visiting friends and family, as well as getting in some last minute shopping.

“It is important that people are aware that public transport services will be subject to change during this time. It is a particularly busy time for public transport so we are advising those wishing to travel to check our suite of services before doing so as these are regularly updated with the latest travel information.

“We have a number of ways people can access travel information – through our bilingual website, app, call centre and via our social media channels – so we hope to keep Wales moving over the Christmas and New Year break.”

Traveline Cymru provides a ‘one-stop-shop’ for travel information in Wales. The not-for-profit company is based on a partnership between the Welsh Government, public transport operators in Wales and Welsh local authorities. It provides route and timetable information for all bus, coach and rail services in the country via a bilingual website www.traveline-cymru.info,  its call centre (0871 200 22 33) and a suite of services for mobile phone users, including a bilingual app.
