Following requests from both residents and walking groups the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty will be backing a Sunday/Bank Holiday bus from Monmouth to Ross-on-Wye, via Goodrich and Whitchurch (for Symond’s Yat). This will allow connections from New Adventure Travel services from Abergavenny, Chepstow and Newport and  so that people can enjoy a good day in the Wye Valley.

The 34 Sunday and Bank Holiday bus will be operated by First Bus from Sunday May 4th to 28th September, 2014. The service will offer four journeys between Monmouth and Ross at 1135, 1335 and 1535 and 1715 with return buses to connect with departures from Newport for Abergavenny, Chepstow, Raglan, Usk and Newport.  A bus will also leave from Hereford Railway Station at 10.10, returning from Monmouth at 17.15

The Network Rider ticket will be valid on the service as will be Welsh concessionary passes and English National Concessionary Passes issued by Herefordshire Council so as to facilitate ease of cross boundary travel.

Wye Valley AONB Officer, Andrew Blake adds:

“This is a flagship project for us. We want to encourage more people to visit the Wye Valley by bus; the journey is always part of the day out and buses allow you to sit back and enjoy the view. The bus is being supported financially by the AONB in conjunction with the Walking with Offa project. It allows people to explore landscapes and local places; it’s an irresistible offa.”
