Service Updates

Groes-faen Terrace (between Bargoed and Deri)

As a result of the closure buses on route 1 will not be able to serve the Darran Valley but will instead operate direct via the A469 between Pontlottyn (Square) and Bargoed (Factory Road). Buses will not stop on the diversionary route.

A free shuttle bus (route 1A) will operate between Groes-faen, Deri, Pen-twyn, Fochriw, Brynhyfryd and Pontlottyn to connect with most buses on route 1 at Pontlottyn Square. The full timetable is attached. It is important that drivers wait their time at Pontlottyn Square and be mindful of connections with the shuttle bus.

Affected Services:
