Cardiff Transport Guide

Cardiff is well-serviced in terms of public transport with buses and trains running frequently around the centre and extending into Wales and England. For a capital city, the traffic situation is excellent and is nearly always free-flowing. For this reason, renting a car to roam the centre and explore the surrounding towns is advisable.

How to get around Cardiff

Once in the city centre, one of the most convenient ways to manoeuvre between the streets is on foot. The area is well-pedestrianised and very straightforward to find your way around with most attractions within walking distance of each other. The local bus routes are operated by Cardiff Bus and provide regular services around the city. The main bus station can be found on Wood Street, which is also where nationwide services begin their journey. The train station in Cardiff is situated in Central Square (near the bus station) and runs services throughout Wales and the entire United Kingdom. Taxis are fairly priced and can be booked from a hotel or queue at one of the many taxi ranks that dot the city. For visitors that happen to arrive by air and land in Cardiff Airport, the best way to get to the city is by catching the X91 bus that waits just outside of the departures gate exit.
