Transport for Wales Rail


18th and 20th August

As a result of the industrial action taken by The National Union of Rail, Maritime, and Transport Workers (RMT), the majority of Transport for Wales rail services will be suspended on  Thursday 18th and Saturday 20th of August 2022.

Transport for Wales is not in dispute with RMT. However, the industrial action resulting from the dispute between RMT, and Network Rail means they will be unable to operate rail services on Network Rail infrastructure.

13th August

As a result of the industrial action taken by The Associated Society of Locomotive Engineers and Firemen (ASLEF) on the 30th of July, Transport for Wales services on these days are expected to be much busier than usual.

Unfortunately, we are unable to update the Traveline Cymru Journey Planner, Timetable and Travel Map page to reflect real time information regarding bus and rail services affected by the Industrial Action.

Disruptions are expected on the days prior and after the industrial action. Due to the large-scale disruption on rail, it is possible that road and bus travel will be impacted. Please expect busy services, delays, and cancellations.
