Are bus services in Cardiff de-regulated like in the rest of Britain? It doesn't appear so, but I wasn't sure.

Well in the city centre all buses are run by Cardiff Bus, which is part on Cardiff City Council. But Bebb which is part of Veiola does operate in some of the outer suberbs.

Its only £6 for a network rider ticket, allowing you to use other bus services, to go right in to the valleys, and allong the Welsh M4 corridor.

It is £3 is you only go on Cardiff Bus, buses, in the capital city.

See- http://www.cardiffbus.com/fares/riders.htm

CARDIFF | Public Transport

Cardiff metro: Plan encourages people to 'leave cars at home'
21 February 2014




The first phase of improvements between Cardiff Bay and the city centre could cost £18m, says the report

Plans for a regional transport system aimed at encouraging more people to leave their cars at home have been backed by Cardiff's cabinet

The metro project is aimed at improving transport links between Cardiff and south east Wales.

The entire network, which could be built by 2030 and would involve trains, buses and trams, could cost £4bn.

More than 77,000 people commute into Cardiff each day with a large majority travelling by road.

The scheme which was discussed by senior Cardiff councillors on Friday could see a transport corridor developed into Rhondda Cynon Taf.

The full council is to be asked to set up a task group to build the Cardiff elements of the network, estimated at £220m.

The first phase of improvements between Cardiff Bay and the city centre are predicted to cost £18m.

The second phase costing £44m would involve work around Callaghan Square connecting to Cardiff Central railway station.

Reusing the disused City Line in Fairwater through to Creigiau and, with additional improvements, on to Rhondda Cynon Taf could cost a further £161m.

For the last two years the Metro Consortium, with members including some of the biggest businesses in south Wales, has been looking at how the city and the wider region can continue to develop into the future with improved transport and infrastructure at its heart.

'Adventurous'

It aims to improve access to the capital from the Merthyr, Rhymney. Gwent, Rhondda and Neath valleys, according to the report.

The number of commuters could rise with a further 30,000 properties planned to be built in the city to meet expected growth.

Councillor Graham Hinchey, cabinet member for strategic planning and transport, said a regional metro system was a "proven and demonstrable" way of getting commuters out of cars, as shown in Manchester and Nottingham.

He said: "A tram-train is equal to 177 cars - equal to three large buses. The tram-train can run in bus lanes, it can run on the road, it can then convert onto the main train track system.

"It's probably the most adventurous system that people will move out of the car into."

He added: "In the past we've had some concepts that have been futuristic rather than realistic - the ULTra [Urban Light Transport project] was one.

"We're not talking about Disneyland, we're not talking about fairies. As long as it's cheap and secure, and is integrated with other modes of transport, it will work."

Council tax

Meanwhile, at the same meeting on Friday, cabinet councillors also backed a report outlining a 3.97% council tax rise as the local authority looks to save around £50m from its budget.

The proposals include cutting the equivalent of around 600 jobs from its pay bill.

Almost a third, 190, would be through voluntary redundancy, with some 130 posts left unfilled while around 70 staff would be redeployed.

A further 225 jobs are expected to be shaved off the wages bill by restructuring council services or finding alternative ways of providing services, say council officers.

The proposals for staff also include reducing the working week from 37 hours to 36 hours and ceasing to pay professional subscriptions or relocation costs.

Cardiff council faces a 2.9% reduction in its cash funding from the Welsh government.

The authority's budget and plan to set up a metro task group will both be subject to a vote by the full council on Thursday 27 February.

Cardiff is quite fortunate in having a fairly dense network of rail lines and stations already, both inside the city boundaries and into the surrounding commuter districts.

So the potential is already there, there isn't the need to find many completely new paths through the city and investments in electrification, station improvements, increased frequencies etc should turn that into a pretty good network Imo in a few years.

South Wales Metro consultation to begin
30 Nov 2015



UK: Public consultation on the proposed Cardiff Capital Region Metro programme to develop an integrated network of rail, bus and light rail services is to begin in early 2016, Wales’ First Minister Carwyn Jones announced on November 30.

Metro would involve incremental infrastructure improvements and potentially the development of light rail and bus rapid transit routes to provide a ‘substantial increase’ in the speed and frequency of public transport, with the aim of providing a comprehensive network with four services per hour on each route and integrated ticketing
