Integrated tickets with Transport for Wales Rail

We’ve partnered with Transport for Wales Rail so now you can travel from Aberystwyth to destinations in South Wales with just one ticket. 

Instead of using different apps, websites and sellers to buy your separate train and bus tickets, you can now purchase one ticket to cover your journey on both Transport for Wales Rail services and the TrawsCymru T1 and T5 buses.

If you’re travelling on a Transport for Wales Rail service from destinations in South Wales you’ll need to get off at Carmarthen and then swap onto a TrawsCymru T1 service to continue your journey. If you’re travelling from Aberystwyth, Lampeter or Aberaeron, you’ll start your journey on a TrawsCymru service and swap onto Transport for Wales Rail service at Carmarthen to continue to your journey to your destination.
