Coastal bus users urged to take note of new timetables

22nd June 2016

Members of the public are being urged to note changes to the popular Coastal Cruiser bus timetables which are used by many local people and visitors to the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.

Changes have been made to the timetables of the two Coastal Cruiser services (387 and 388 services), which cover the Pembroke Dock, Angle and Stackpole areas.

The amended times mean many printed leaflets and the timetables included in the 2016 edition of the National Park Authority’s visitor newspaper Coast to Coast are now incorrect.

Pembrokeshire Coast Path National Trail Officer, Theresa Nolan said: “People who are planning to reach the Pembrokeshire Coast Path or local beaches by using the Coastal Cruiser services should make sure they check the new timetables as the majority of the pick-up times have been changed.

“This includes the times for the first and last stops of the day, so we would urge people to make sure they change their plans accordingly to ensure they are able to reach their desired destination.”

The Coastal Cruiser bus services stop at many popular visitor destinations including the beaches at West Angle Bay, Freshwater West, Broad Haven South and Freshwater East, as well as Stackpole Quay and Bosherston.

The buses also stop at St Govan’s Head, Stack Rocks and in many local villages, in addition to the towns of Pembroke and Pembroke Dock.

The other coastal buses, the Poppit Rocket, Strumble Shuttle, Puffin Shuttle and Celtic Coaster are not affected by these changes.

Since Silcox Coaches ceased operating on June 5, there have been changes to other local bus routes, which now have new operators and amended timetables and include services 311, 351, 352, 356, 360, 381 and 411.

Some of these routes, such as 351, 352 and 356 may affect visitors.

Pembrokeshire Coastal Bus service leaflets and all revised bus timetables are available from www.pembrokeshire.gov.uk/transport

The coastal bus services are provided by Pembrokeshire County Council with contributions from the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority.

Bus timetables are also available from all Pembrokeshire County Council Tourist Information Centres and National Park Visitor Centres in Tenby, Oriel y Parc in St Davids and Newport.
