Pembrokeshire Coastal Bus passengers top 90,000 for the first time

Passenger numbers on Pembrokeshire’s coastal buses reached an all-time high last year.

Figures show more than 90,000 people travelled on the buses in 2017/18, compared to 85,000 in the previous year and 82,000 in 2015/16. The buses are run and funded by Pembrokeshire County Council and Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority.

Cllr Phil Baker, County Council Cabinet Member for Planning and Infrastructure, and Member of the National Park Authority said: “The coastal bus services are a great means of exploring the Pembrokeshire Coast Path and the county’s award-winning beaches.

“They provide easy access for walkers and visitors, also doubling up as regular transport to inland towns for those who live in coastal communities.

“Many passengers hop on for a scenic tour or use them as part of a walk.”

There are five Coastal Bus services operating along the entire coastline of Pembrokeshire – and most of them have been named to reflect their operating area – such as the Strumble Shuttle and Poppit Rocket.

The original Puffin Shuttle operates along the St Brides area of the Coast, with the Celtic Coaster serving the St Davids Peninsula and the Coastal Cruiser operating around the Angle Peninsula.  

All the buses are decorated with colourful graphics, which makes them easy to spot.

If you haven’t tried them yet, why not take a bus to enjoy a trip to the beach, head out for a walk or visit one of the many attractions around the Pembrokeshire Coast.
