A local bus company, I&S Coaches, is launching a new market day bus between St Weonards and Abergavenny via Broad Oak, Garway Common, Skenfrith, Grosmont, Cross Ash and Llanvetherine.

The 438 service will operate at 9.30am from St Weonards and returns from Abergavenny Bus Station at 1.15pm on Tuesdays only. It is a cross border service, which has not operated for well over 20 years.

The journey takes just under an hour and the start date is Tuesday, November 22nd.

Ian Phillips of I&S Coaches told the Gazette: “The aim is to serve our local borderland community; we know that Abergavenny market attracts people from far afield and we want to make sure local villagers can enjoy the much loved market. We have timed the bus from St Weonards so as to connect with the 8.40am Stagecoach 36 bus from Hereford to Monmouth and look forward to welcoming passengers aboard.

“If this succeeds we’ll look to provide more market day buses to other towns from the Broad Oak, Garway, Grosmont and Skenfrith area.

“The day return fare is £5 from St Weonards/Garway area and English and Welsh bus passes are accepted. ”

Intending passengers needing more information should contact Ian on 01432 264968 or visit Herefordshire Council’s online Bus Travel section for the current full timetable.
