Transport & connections

Bus
Cardiff Bus runs an extensive system throughout Cardiff and the local area, travelling to Penarth and Barry. Within the city centre, most buses move around the city in an anti-clockwise direction. A regular bendy bus service connects the city centre with Cardiff Bay. Trawscymru run the express bus service T9 between Cardiff and Cardiff Airport. Stagecoach run services to surrounding areas such as Caerphilly, Tongwynlais and the Valleys. For up to date information about the bus network visit cardiffbus.com

Car
Numerous pay and display and multi-storey car parks are available in the city centre. The St David’s Shopping Centre has 24 hour onsite parking with over 2,000 spaces. Cardiff has Park & Ride services to the East, South and West of the city.

Train
All 20 stations in Cardiff are owned by Network Rail and managed by Arriva Trains Wales which also operates all train services at these stations, with the exception of Cardiff Central which is also served by CrossCountry and Great Western Railway.

The stations form part of Cardiff’s commuter rail network, colloquially known as Valley Lines, with Cardiff Queen Street and Cardiff Central being the main hubs of the city. Cardiff Central is also one of the United Kingdom’s major railway stations, providing connections to Newport, Bristol, Bath, London, Southampton, Portsmouth, Gloucester, Cheltenham, Birmingham and Nottingham.

Bike
Cardiff is very flat and easily negotiated by bike. You’ll find plenty of bike racks around the city centre and cycle paths like the Taff Trail provide traffic-free routes.
