Due to significant driver shortages across the transport industry, many operators are having to change their service timetables or cancel services at late notice.


Short Notice Service Updates

Driver shortages across the transport industry mean some operators are changing timetables at short notice, which means our Journey Planner and Timetables page may not be up to date straight away. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Any updated timetables we receive from operators will be added below. Please check under the relevant operator’s name.

If there’s any information you believe to be incorrect or updated timetables that are missing, please email feedback@traveline.cymru and we will look into this for you as soon as possible.

Late Notice Cancellations

Due to the driver shortages, some bus and train services are being cancelled at late notice (usually on the morning on the day of travel).

These late-notice cancellations are being announced on operator’s social media accounts, which we will also share via our own social media channels. You can access both Traveline Cymru’s and operator’s social media channels below:
