Principality Stadium Events

During large events at the Principality Stadium, surrounding roads will close and buses will use different city centre bus stops.

Please scroll down to the table which shows where each service starts and ends when a full city centre closure is in place (i.e. Westgate Street, Wood Street, Havelock Street, St Mary Street, Castle Street and Duke Street are closed to traffic)

Due to the ongoing regeneration scheme for Tudor Street, buses to the West will start and end at Fitzhamon Embankment on event days until further notice.

*Our X59 service (Park & Ride East at Pentwyn) will not be used for event Park & Ride and the site will be locked after the last bus.*
