It may now cost more to hop aboard a Cardiff Bus at Penarth’s town centre bus stop

Cardiff Bus is increasing a number of its fares on its network of routes – including the price of tickets from Penarth – with effect from Sunday October 29th. 

The current price of a single journey within the Cardiff and Penarth area will increase from £1:80 to £1.90.  The “short hop” fare in this area remains unchanged at £1:00.

Cardiff Buses sometimes come to Penarth in pairs

The adult “Day To Go” fare which covers unlimited travel within the Cardiff and Penarth area will remain at £3.60 for those who purchase via the app or iff card, BUT  it will increase to £3.80 if bought on the bus.

The “Day To Go” ticket for young people aged 5-15 and 16-18, with a valid Young Persons’ iff card or My Travel Pass will remain frozen if purchased via the app or online but will rise by 10p to £2.50 if bought directly on the bus using cash.

Adult “Week To Go” fares covering unlimited travel within the Cardiff and Penarth area will rise by £1 for tickets bought directly on the bus, but will rise by 50p if bought via the app or online. For young people the Week To Go fare will rise by 40p if tickets are bought on the bus and by 10p if bought via the iff app or online.

    I don’t think anyone can complain at those prices. £1.90 to go anywhere on their buses is incredibly cheap even after the rise. You can’t get a decent coffee for that in many places.

      According to their Website Cardiff Bus Customer Panel last met in June 2015.
      Main item discussed- lack of information on the Website. (lol)
      Very poor attitude!

      • Penarth says:

        What on earth has that got to do with the price increase? Have a day off, Mr Rapier please

  2. Steven says:

    I’ve always been informed that the short hop fare wasn’t and has never been available in our area!

  3. Simon says:

    How much is it on the train?

  4. AK says:

    It’s a bargain compared to the cost of parking in Cardiff. The buses are new, clean and comfortable.
