Bus service to run from Barry Transport Interchange
A bus service will begin running from the Barry Transport Interchange early next year after the Vale of Glamorgan Council reached agreement with operator Adventure Travel.
From Monday, January 8, the B3 will stop at the location, near Barry Docks train station, on its route to Cadoxton from Barry and on its way back.
The service, which is funded by the Council, will run seven times a day instead of eight which will improve reliability, helping it run on time.
Cllr Bronwen Brooks, Vale of Glamorgan Council Cabinet Member for Sustainable places, said: “At a difficult time for bus operators, due to declining usage and reducing Welsh Government funding, I’m pleased that we are able to provide this service from the Barry Dock Transport Interchange.
“The changes made to the timetable will increase service reliability, part of wider Council work to improve this aspect of bus provision.
“We know a large number of residents depend on bus transport to travel around the county, which is why we want to provide a more useful, effective service.
“This should be of particular benefit to residents in Gibbonsdown, western and central Barry who will have a direct bus service into the interchange and is the latest development regarding that facility, with work continuing to further add to the services on offer.”
The Barry Transport Interchange is a meeting point for different modes of transport, connecting train, bus, cycle and taxi services as well as offering close by park and ride facilities. Adjoining the Council’s Grade II listed Docks Office building, the project was delivered in partnership with the Cardiff Capital Region (CCR) and Welsh Government.
