Welcome back to Swansea Bay without a Car


Welcome back to Swansea Bay without a Car

It’s been a long time and a very hard one when I’ve wanted to promote sustainable travel and not been able to due to COVID restrictions.

The latest news from Welsh Government means it’s possible to recommence promotion as social distancing is to be abolished very shortly (but face masks must continue to be worn).

There’s also good news from Swansea Council in that from the end of the month, bus travel will be FREE on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays throughout August.

Already in place is the reintroduction of Gower Explorer Sunday buses (six journeys per Sunday until end of August, Swansea to Port Eynon and Rhossili (see summary timetable below)

The fantastic seafront can be seen to good effect from the new daily open-topper service between Swansea and Bracelet Bay.

It runs every hour every day throughout the summer and a means to avoid the heavy traffic and parking difficulties at Mumbles.

Shortly I shall be helping Traws Cymru re-launch their T6 bus from Swansea and Neath to Brecon which runs every hour (weekdays) and five times a day on Sundays. Main attraction on the route is Dan-yr-Ogof Showcaves, a chance to escape the heat, and a scenically stunning route on to Brecon.

Some of the information on the website is a little out of date so I will be trawling through the site in the next couple of weeks to make the necessary amendments; the basic information though remains much the same.
