All aboard! First Cymru launches open-top bus rides this Summer
We’re relaunching our Mumbles and Porthcawl open-top Coaster bus services and introducing TWO new routes for Summer 2022; Aberavon and Tenby.
Our Mumbles, Porthcawl and Tenby routes will begin operating on Thursday 2nd June, with the Aberavon Coaster taking its inaugural journey on Monday 6th June. As we did last year, each Coaster is hop-on, hop-off – so one ticket is enough to ride all day, as many journeys as you’d like!
Prices also remain unchanged over last year:
Mumbles, Porthcawl & Aberavon
- Adult: £5
- Under 15: £3.30
- Group of 5: £15
- Adult: £6
- Under 15: £4
- Group of 5: £18

Jane Reakes-Davies, Managing Director for First Cymru said:
It is an exciting time for everyone at First as we launch these new leisure services starting this Spring Bank Holiday weekend. The open-top routes will give many people a new opportunity to have a great day out and experience the Swansea Bay and Porthcawl coastline from a different perspective, with beautiful views on the top deck. The services will also attract day visitors to the area and provide a much-needed boost to the local economy.
