Shuttle Buses

The University runs a free shuttle bus service between the sites of the Pontypridd campus. Some local supermarkets also provide free buses, and bus excursions and one-off buses may be available for specific events.

The 2021/22 service begins at the start of term and runs during term time.

The 16-seater minibus picks up/drops off outside Brecon Building foyer in Treforest and at Lower Glyntaff outside the Elaine Morgan Building.

Please arrive at the bus stop on time as the buses will need to leave promptly.
