To travel on a train you must buy a ticket at the FIRST available opportunity. Buying a ticket in advance of travel can save you time and money. If you have not purchased a ticket in advance or there are no facilities to buy at the station where your journey started, only then should you buy a ticket on the train or from other retail staff.
Not buying a ticket or the correct ticket can lead to prosecution or a fine.

Anti-social behaviour at stations and on trains will not be tolerated. Trains and stations are patrolled by British Transport Police and Security Staff. For your safety, trains and most stations are equipped with CCTV. This can be used in evidence against persons acting in breach of Civil or Railway Bye-laws, which may lead to prosecution and restriction on future travel.
Smoking on our trains and stations. Passengers are not allowed to smoke anywhere on Arriva Trains Wales trains or stations.
