Update on bus services through the Treberth estate

Over the last few weeks many Ringland residents contacted me about the imminent cancellation of the 62 bus service.  The petition, as well as comments I received, highlighted how strongly people object to the stopping of this vital service.

I forwarded a petition, as well as other concerns raised, to the Managing Director at Newport Transport Limited (the company in charge of Newport Bus), Mr Scott Pearson. I asked that he provide a response to the concerns raised.

Mr Pearson has advised me that the responsibility for commissioning the service lies with the Integrated Transport Unit (ITU) at Newport City Council; therefore the petition has been forwarded to them.  He did however confirm the following:

When the service 62 stops in this area, the service 73 will be redirected to serve Beatty Road thus giving the residents of this area a bus service equivalent to what they have now.”

The 73 service will now include the Treberth area, operating outbound from Newport via the following stops:

  • Chepstow Road
  • Treberth Crescent
  • Treberth Avenue
  • Benbow Road
  • Hawkins Crescent
  • Llanwern Road, back onto Chepstow Road.The inbound service from Chepstow will operate in reverse.

I have copied the timetable for the 73 service below as I hope people will find it useful. Please note that the (*) symbol indicates when the 73 service will divert via Treberth.
