No need for two cars anymore

Just hail the bus to whizz up and down the coast

Made easier with the coastal bus services

Getting around Pembrokeshire, Wales

The coastal bus services have great names such as the Puffin Shuttle, Poppit Rocket, Strumble Shuttle, Celtic Coaster, and Coastal Cruiser, and services run up and down the National Park coastline.

This means the entire length of the 186 mile (299km) Pembrokeshire Coast Path National Trail, from St Dogmaels to Amroth, is accessible by public transport. The buses run 7 days a week from May to September and 2 days a week in winter and are perfect for walkers who can plan a day walk on the coast path without the need for two cars. It’s a hail and ride service so just flag the buses down along the coast road and hop on. You can even take dogs and buggies on board too.

The excellent Pembrokeshire coastal bus service has been acknowledged by a leading sustainable travel and tourism website, The Green Traveller, who has produced a car-free guide to the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.

These buses have different winter and summer timetables, but run year-round, and are supplemented by further buses criss-crossing the Pembrokeshire peninsula.

Fflescsi bus

Fflecsi buses pick you up and drop you off in the service area and not just at a bus stop. A bus picks you up at your request, changing its route so that all passengers can get to where they need to go. Fflecsi is designed to help people make essential local journeys.

Book in advance using the app or by calling 0300 234 0300.  You’ll be able to choose from a range of services.  The services have been designed so that everyone in Northwest Pembrokeshire has travel options each week.  This is a really big area, so services vary from day to day – fflecsi may serve one village one day and another the next.
