Newport Bus launches new X74 express route
A new express service linking Chepstow, Caldicot and Magor to Newport is being launched by Newport Bus. The new hourly X74 service will operate from 06.10 until 20.00 from Monday to Friday with a reduced service on Saturdays.
“We have engaged very closely with our customers in Monmouthshire to learn more about their views regarding the kinds of bus services they would like,” says Morgan Stevens, Newport Bus operations director. “We realised a more express-style service that gave people a quicker route to Newport and the opposite way to south Monmouthshire was important and this has been the driver behind the new service.
“With modern buses featuring free wi-fi, the service is great for both commuters and leisure travellers and is part of our commitment to our customers to continue investing in our services and bus fleet as much as we can.”
The X74 service launches on Monday 6 March.
