Millennium Stadium Events
Passengers are advised that when large events take place at the
Millennium Stadium, Cardiff, bus services can be disrupted and
terminate prior to Cardiff Bus Station. www.millenniumstadium.com/events
The Vale of Glamorgan Council makes every effort to provide
up to date public transport information about services
provided by various private operators on our website, public
transport guides and at bus stops. However, due to the fact that
operators can make changes to their commercially operated services
at any time and limited Council resources, this Authority is unable
to guarantee the accuracy of information provided at all times.
Therefore, please check with the service operator or Traveline
Cymru (0871 200 22 33) prior to travel.
