Do the coastal buses run in the winter?
Yes! Four out of the five coastal buses are running now. They offer a reduced service during the winter, which reflects demand at this time of year, but they do run!

Strumble Shuttle - between Fishguard – St Davids*, via coast road. *Including Whitesands on: Thursdays and Saturdays

Puffin Shuttle – between Haverfordwest – Milford Haven – St Davids, via coast road. on: Thursdays & Saturdays. Please note the 315 Puffin Shuttle bus actually runs from Haverfordwest – Milford Haven – Marloes, 6-days a week (Monday – Saturday).

How do I walk the coast path without a car?
Easy! Catch a train, coach or ferry into Pembrokeshire and then use the buses to get around. The beauty of using the coastal buses is that you can walk the coast path in one direction without having to worry about collecting a car at the end of the day. By using the buses to travel up and down the coast it also means you can stay in your accommodation for more nights. See the ‘Coast Path’ section for itinerary ideas.

Can I bring my dog on the bus?
Yes, your dog is welcome on the bus (at the drivers discretion) providing they are clean, kept on a lead and sit on the floor out of the way of other passengers. All we ask is that you be a responsible owner and clean up after your little friend - leave only paw prints behind!

How much do the buses cost?
It is difficult to give you an exact fare as the coastal buses are registered local services, with fares structured accordingly. If you would like to know the cost please ring the bus operator directly, contact details are shown on the timetables.

All Wales Bus Pass holders travel free on the coastal buses - simply show your pass to the driver.

If you are using lots of buses in one day the WEST WALES ROVER TICKET is good value and is valid for all day travel. Adults £8.00, Children £4.50. Adult Weekly £30, Children Weekly £16. If you are planning to come to Pembrokeshire by public transport look into the WALES FLEXI PASS, which is accepted on all coastal buses.

Can I bring my bike on the bus?
Unfortunately the buses are unable to carry bikes due to current legislation. Don’t forget you can carry bikes on trains: 2x bikes on the Arriva Trains Wales and 6x bikes on the First Great Western Trains.

Top

Where do I catch the bus?
The buses run to a timetable, which describes where the bus stops are located. In towns you catch the bus at a recognised bus stop, but once you get into the countryside the buses operate on a 'Hail and Ride' basis, which means you don't have to find a bus stop to catch the bus. Simply join the road and flag the bus down as it passes you.

How will I know where to get off the bus?
Our local drivers are very knowledgeable about the area and will help you locate walking drop-off and pick-up points, find your destination or recommend one!

We are a big group, can we book a bus?
If you are a group of 8+ people wishing to use the coastal buses then please contact the appropriate bus operator in advance of travel to discuss your travel plans (Mon-Fri, during office hours). The bus operator number is listed on the bus timetable.
