Just found this on the Megabus website:


From Monday 23rd May:

London Victoria Coach Station 18:30
Bristol UWE 20:50
Bristol Colston Hall 21:45
Cardiff 22:15
Swansea Quadrant Bus Station 23:20 (their description, not mine!)
Carmarthen Blue Street 00:05
Pembroke Dock Ferry Terminal 01:00
Rosslare Europort 06:46

From Tuesday 24th May
Rosslare Europort 20:15
Pembroke Dock Ferry Terminal 02:45
Carmarthen 03:40
Swansea Quadrant Bus Station 04:30
Cardiff 05:30
Newport 06:00
Bristol Colston Hall 06:45
Bristol UWE 06:55
London Victoria Coach Station 09:30


It seems  you can get through ticketing as well. Not only that but this also means a earlier arrival into london for anyone traveling from west wales as the currrent national express service doesnt arrive in london til 10:50

I am glad to see swansea back on the megabus network, i do have some photos of the tri axle olympian parked up on the kingsway in swansea.

This expansion of megabus west of cardiff is likely to unsettle both first & national express, could we see some journeys on first cymru's greyhound service being extended to Bristol & Lndon?

Some further expansions:

Newport gains an additional service to London at 07:25 (which starts at
Cwmbran 07:05) and a 19:30 return from Victoria (terminates Cwmbran 23:15).

The 04:30 Newport to London now calls at Swindon Stratton Park (05:45),
with a return available from Swindon at 00:35 (23:00 off Victoria).


The cwmbran depot is also expected to get more new coaches as there is also plasn to increase the Cardiff - Brimingham - Manchester - Newcastle - Sunderland service .
