Disruptions

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.
