Comfort Delgro-owned Adventure Travel has responded to the rise in Welsh staycations by introducing a beach bus for summer. The operator’s route 404, which normally runs from Pontypridd to Bridgend, will be extended to Porthcawl, providing a direct route to the popular seaside town for customers from the Valleys. The service will run hourly Monday to Saturday until mid-October and use specially-branded Optare MetroCity’s.
Adam Keen, Managing Director of Adventure Travel, said: “The extension of the 404 service to Porthcawl opens up more opportunities for passengers from the Valleys to visit the beachfront – something that many have been wanting to do throughout lockdown. Our summer extension to the 404 route will generate memorable days out with very reasonable fares and friendly drivers, which we think will be well received by families who have had a frankly dismal last 12 months or so.
“Now travel restrictions have been lifted, many people are getting their summer holidays booked right here in the UK, and we’re happy to provide them with an easy transport option to get them to some of the superb destinations in South Wales.”
