BayTrans, promoting sustainable travel options to and around Swansea Bay is pleased to update you with our latest publications and other travel news.
This is our most popular leaflet by far, now in its eighth year of publication; favourite amongst users is the pictorial map inside which shows in a nutshell, what Gower has to offer the visitor travelling by bus.
It is in course of distribution on our behalf by Pear Communications.
‘Gower on the hour every hour from Swansea’ on Sundays & Public Holidays; Sunday Explorer started on Easter Sunday and runs through to 28 September. South and North Gower routes converge on Rhossili which is easily the number one destination. One £4.70 First Day Swansea Bay ticket gives unlimited travel for the day for an out and back direct or via alternate routes. Users equipped with the latest ‘smart’ technology will appreciate the provision of free Wi-Fi on board.
Gower Sunday Explorer is a BayTrans initiative and is funded through the Swansea Rural Development Partnership.
Everything you need to know about travelling by bus and train in the Swansea Bay area this Spring and Summer is contained in this attractive 20 page booklet. It includes details how to get from Swansea, Neath and Port Talbot to Gower, Mumbles, Swansea’s Mountain Country, Margam Country Park and walking in the beautiful Valleys of Neath Port Talbot.
This booklet will be available shortly at TIC’s and the information offices at Swansea, Neath and Port Talbot bus stations.
BayTrans has worked with Arriva Trains Wales and First Cymru to bring in a new ticket that greatly simplifies travel to Gower. The peninsula is beyond the validity of the Swansea Plus Bus but otherwise the principle is the same. Explore Gower tickets can be bought at any UK station at the same time as a return train ticket to Swansea. It is suitable for either a day itinerary (£4.50) or for a weekend or short break (£10.00) with a 3 day version of the ticket.
Plus Bus tickets can be bought at any UK station and BayTrans has secured extensions to the validity of these tickets:
Swansea Plus Bus takes in the whole city centre and includes Mumbles & Pennard and is now extended to Pontlliw, Felindre and Cwm Clydach to encourage visitors to the walking opportunities in Swansea’s ‘Mountain Country’
Neath Plus Bus takes in the town area and the whole of the Neath and Dulais Valleys and is now extended to Pontardawe.
Swansea Plus Bus takes in the town area including Aberafan seafront and Margam and Afan Forest Parks
