Newport Bus Routes

We’re delighted to inform you that following discussions with Arriva Buses, we have secured the following service from Newport to the College campuses. We have been working with Arriva throughout the summer to secure this route.

 

Bus Service Details

The bus service days and timing are as follows (College days only):

07:25 Route 519 Newport – Shrewsbury (with an extension to Shrewsbury College as route 8a)

14:45 Route 519 Shrewsbury – Newport

17:15 Route 519 Shrewsbury – Newport (with an extension from Shrewsbury College as route 8a)

This service will begin on Monday 7 September.

 

The Bus Service going forward

Please note that this service will be provided until the October half term. Arriva will review passenger numbers in order that they can make an informed view on continuing the service beyond that point.

Transport for students travelling from Aberystwyth on the Transport for Wales (TfW) Cambrian Line

We are pleased to announce that Transport for Wales has added an additional service between Aberystwyth to Shrewsbury. There are now two services running serving Shrewsbury.

Due to the pandemic, Transport for Wales has been running a reduced service.
