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.

Transport for Wales Rail


TfW introduced an emergency rail timetable from 22 December, which equated to a reduction of between 10-15% of the standard timetable introduced on 12 December.

However, with staff absences continuing to increase, the decision has been taken to further reduce services from 3 January to ensure the company can provide a reliable service throughout this latest stage of the pandemic.

All customers are urged to check www.tfw.wales before travelling and follow the up-to-date guidance from the Welsh Government.



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:
