All day and all night...

355 days ago Mon 29th Jan 2018

From early to late, 7 days a week! 

Buses run on a 24/7 basis on services 18 & 27. Buses on both services depart the city centre at 0030, 0130, 0230 and 0330 each night of the week.

And that's not all!  We also run night services on route 44 to St Mellons via Trowbridge and route 57 to Pontprennau via Roath, Llanedeyrn and Pentwyn on Thursday night/Friday morning, Friday night/Saturday morning and Saturday night/Sunday morning.

Service 18 City Centre - Canton - Ely *DAILY*

Service 27 City Centre - Birchgrove - Llanishen - Thornhill *DAILY*

Service 44 City Centre - Newport Road - Trowbridge - St. Mellons (Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays)

Service 57 City Centre - Albany Road - Llanederyn - Pentwyn - Pontprennau (Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays)

Normal fares apply, and if you already have one of our weekly, monthly or annual passes then these are valid too, and if not this is another great reason to get one.

Day to go tickets can be used on the night buses on that day, but day tickets purchased on night buses cannot be used for travel the following day i.e day tickets are valid from the first bus (approx 04:30) until the last night bus (journeys departing the city centre at 03:30).

We also offer a fantastic return ticket on these routes which can be used between 18:00 and 04:15 when night buses operate. The return ticket costs just £3.10 for adults or £2.10 for young persons 18 years of age or younger.

We hope you'll make use of these services whether you're travelling to work or out to enjoy what the city has to offer in the evenings.
