5 Tips for Staying Prepared this Halloween27 October 2014
Halloween week has arrived! Which means the annual rush to find a good costume, and sweets for Trick or Treaters has begun. However, with lots of Halloween events calling you out into the night, you also need to find your way there. Using public transport during these periods can be a great way to avoid the hassle of driving later at night and trying to find parking on the busy roads. However, Halloween can sometimes be a cause for anti-social behaviour and transport changes to ensure the safety of passengers, so if you’re making your way out this Halloween, be sure to keep informed with your local transport news.
To help you out, we’ve put together our top 5 tips for staying prepared this Halloween, so you don’t get left out in the dark:
1. Checking our Halloween and Bonfire Night Travel page
Our Halloween and Bonfire Night Travel page is here to keep you informed of any changes that are in place across the Halloween period. Particularly if you’re travelling around Cardiff, there are diversions in place to some Cardiff Bus services, which are detailed here. Save this page to your favourites, and check back before heading over to your bus stop.
2. Downloading our app and using the journey planner
Once you know where you want to go, head over to our Journey Planner to find the most convenient route for your journey in advance. All the information you’ll need to make your journey can be displayed here, along with timetables and interactive maps to view the specific information you want in the way you prefer. Not sure how to use the journey planner? Watch our video guide below, courtesy of Rockadove for a step-by-step guide!
3. Follow us on Twitter @TravelineCymru for the latest travel tweets
