Buses in stationEveryone can travel for free by bus around Swansea throughout the summer months.

Swansea Council is funding the initiative to support families and boost retail, leisure and tourism as Swansea emerges from lockdown.

It will also help reduce emissions and congestion by encouraging people onto buses rather than using their car every Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday.

The initiative will run from July 30 to August 30 and is part of the Council’s £20m Recovery Plan, aimed at supporting families and boosting the local economy following the pandemic. The free travel offer also includes a special Sunday service to and from Gower which the Council recently announced.

The Council is working with the city’s bus operators to ensure passengers can travel safely and that all necessary Covid precautions are put in place.

Passengers can also use the free service late into the evening in  a bid to support the city’s night time economy.

Please note: For Bay Campus Travel, Bevan’s row at Port Tennant is the nearest bus stop to and from which free travel is permitted.

      Hello Estelle! Thanks for getting in touch. There is no need to register and you can just hop on. However, you’ll need to look at the FAQ document in the article for the terms and conditions. For instance, the journey would have to start before 11am. Hopefully this helps and happy travelling!
