Transport for Wales (TfW) is telling customers they still need to plan ahead as rail services ramp up.
As of 13 September, Welsh services will increase by 8.5 per cent overall, with new timetables put into place. There will also be two new ‘Mark IV’ long distance trains introduced into passenger service, which will include catering and refreshment services.
Many of the services will be unaffected by the change, but TfW cautioned travellers nevertheless.
Transport for Wales planning and performance director, Colin Lea, said: “To introduce more services through our network, we’ve needed to make some adjustments to our timetable. This means it’s really important for customers to check their journey details ahead of travelling.
“We’re expecting more people to use our services, so our Capacity Checker tool will be really useful for customers to travel when services are quieter.
“Since the easing of restrictions, we’re really pleased to have welcomed back many customers. Travelling by public transport is better for the environment, and many people have been isolated for a long time. We’re delighted that many people are coming back to more sustainable travel options.”
