One easy ticket to cheaper, faster travel

We’ve partnered with TrawsCymru so now you can travel from Aberystwyth to destinations in South Wales with just one ticket, helping you save time and money*. 

Instead of using different apps, websites and sellers to buy your separate train and bus tickets, you can now purchase one ticket to cover your journey on both our rail services and the TrawsCymru T1 and T5 buses.

If you’re travelling on our rail service from destinations in South Wales you’ll need to get off at Carmarthen and then swap onto a TrawsCymru T1 service to continue your journey. If you’re travelling from Aberystwyth, Lampeter or Aberaeron, you’ll start your journey on a TrawsCymru service and swap onto our rail service at Carmarthen to continue to your journey to your destination. 

*In comparison to selected rail-only journeys. Based on selected journeys via integrated route versus train-only, July 2021.


By travelling on both modes, you can save time and money.
