The Welsh Assembly Government in partnership with Arriva Trains
Wales and Traveline Cymru have launched a brand new rail ticket in
Wales, Cymru Connect.
The new Cymru Connect ticket allows passengers to book a rail journey
to places in Wales not formerly accessible on the rail network, for
example Aberaeron and Mold, in one transaction using one ticket.
The way Cymru Connect works is that it incorporates key bus routes in
Wales into the rail network meaning that passengers can book a ticket
from any UK rail station and the ticket will include both their rail
and bus fare.
The benefits of Cymru Connect to the customer are that they will be
able to get to places in Wales that they in the past were unable to
access following the closure of many rail lines by Dr Beeching in the
Cymru Connect also ensures that passengers are offered a more time and
cost effective rail and bus journey rather than a lengthy and often
costly rail journey which at times can take them completely out of
their way to get to their destination.
In short, Cymru Connect will enable passengers to make better, more
informed travel arrangements for their journeys around Wales.
Passengers can plan their Cymru Connect journey by using the Traveline Cymru services:
