Transport for Wales (TfW) said the new services would provide a boost to tourism and provide "essential links between cities, towns and villages".
The announcement includes:
* Four services in each direction between Llandudno Junction and Blaenau Ffestiniog, making it a year-round service
* The single service between Machynlleth and Pwllheli increased to five in each direction
* A Cardiff Central to Maesteg service for the first time
* More than doubling the number of services between Cardiff Central and Swansea from 14 to to 29
* Services from Cardiff to Gloucester starting two hours earlier than during the December 2018 timetable
* Faster direct journey times between Shrewsbury and Crewe with most Marches services stops removed, and stopping services increasing from nine to 16
* Services between Aberystwyth and Shrewsbury increasing from 16 to 21
* The Chester to Crewe summer service becoming year-round
* Thirty-two new services between Llandudno and Llandudno Junction
* Seven extra services between Rhymney and Cardiff
* Services to or from Caerphilly increasing from 16 to 45
* Hourly service between Treherbert and Cardiff, increasing from 15 to 28
* Enhanced Barry Island service, making it similar to the current summer timetable all year
* The Cardiff Queen Street to Cardiff Bay shuttle will increase from 100 services to 130 and will run until 22:00 - previously services finished at 19:00
* The summer timetable along the north Wales coast will run all year
