The Cardi Bach (552) service resumed in Ceredigion on Thursday, 20 July 2023.

The service operates along a spectacular section of the Ceredigion coastline serving settlements between New Quay and Cardigan.  

A timetable has been submitted to the Traffic Commissioner and once this is registered, which is anticipated to happen on 01 August 2023, this timetable will apply. Until the service is registered the service will operate as per the timetable on the Traveline website with the Friday and Saturday timetable also operating on Sunday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Timetables can be viewed on their website:

Councillor Keith Henson is the Cabinet Member responsible for Highways and Environmental Services and Carbon Management. He said: “This is an important service for local people and visitors alike. As well as providing access to the fantastic Ceredigion section of the Wales Coast Path the journey is an attraction in itself. As well as journeys along the coastline itself the Cardi Bach provides opportunities to travel further afield with connections to other services which include the TrawsCymru services. I sincerely hope that people make use of the service as this will support efforts to retain it in the longer term.”

The Cardi Bach Service is funded by the Welsh Government.
