CARDIFF BUS routes across Barry and Penarth are set to change from Sunday, with many services scrapped across the Vale of Glamorgan.

Three routes to Barry will be scrapped as changes are made to multiple services across the Vale. Routes 97, 97 A and 98 will be withdrawn and replaced with new B1 and B2 busses.

Another bus route scrapped across the Vale is the C2, which served as a Cardiff and Vale College rider from the Cardiff campus to Barry.

The withdrawn service comes after the H95 park and ride from the Cardiff Sports Village in Cardiff Bay to Llandough Hospital was scrapped due to low usage.

While these services are withdrawn, the H59 park and ride to University Hospital of Wales will remain supported by the Cardiff and Vale Health Board with no changes expected.

The open-top sky car route 99 from Cardiff City Centre to Penarth Seafront and the Esplanade via Cardiff Bay will continue to run until September 23. While The 96 A from Cardiff to Barry will run as service 96.

Here is the new bus routes due to start on Sunday:

B1: Highlight Park – Colcot – Gibbonsdown – Barry Town Centre – Barry Morrisons – Barry Island (Monday to Saturday)

The new B1 route will run on weekdays from Highlight Park to Colcot (Winston Square) then Gibbonsdown to Barry Town Centre, Barry Morrisons and Barry Island.

B2: Cwm Talwg – Colcot – Gibbonsdown – Barry Town Centre – Barry Morrisons (Monday to Friday)

The new Route B2 will run from Cwm Talwg Estate Colcot (Winston Square) then Gibbonsdown to Barry Town Centre, Barry Morrisons.

The B1 and B2 will run hourly on each route and combined over the section between Colcot (Winston Square), Gibbonsdown, Barry Town Centre and Barry Morrisons to run every 30 minutes.

Both routes will run on Mondays to Fridays; B2 also runs on Saturdays.

There is no direct replacement for North Walk, with the closest alternative is route 96 via Jenner Road to Barry Town Centre to new route B2.

Route 96: Cardiff to Barry

The 96 will operate most journeys via Colcot (Winston Square) in both directions. Evening and Sunday journeys will operate as service 96 not 96A.

Morning and afternoon peak journeys of the 96 will exclude Colcot (Winston Square) and operate via Colcot Arms roundabout instead. 

Services 92, 93, and 94 to Penarth and Barry have a revised timetable. The city centre terminal point for these services will change to Wood Street, stop JA, on the opposite side of the road to BBC Wales HQ.
