EMERGENCY RE-ROUTING OF SERVICE

From 26th May until at least 12th June there are 5 way temporary traffic lights in Chepstow.  This has been causing severe delays to the 65 bus service and Monmouthshire County Council have therefore decided to re-route the bus for this period as follows:

  • From Chepstow bus station the 65 will go via Mounton Road.  This will mean only missing the BP Bus stop ( A48 Newport Road )
  • From Monmouth into Chepstow the 65 will go via Welsh Street, missing out Chepstow Hospital and also the BP Bus Stop ( A48 Newport Road )

MCC will be reviewing this on a daily basis and will update us as and when changes are made.

Updates can be found on our Facebook page and Twitter feed

 

COVID-19 UPDATE

We’re pleased to confirm that the 65 bus service is continuing, despite the current difficult circumstances.  The bus is running to its usual timetable WITH THE EXCEPTION OF the 1715 service from Chepstow to Monmouth and all Saturday services, which are temporarily suspended.

We are very grateful to Monmouthshire County Council for recognising the value of this service for essential travel to and from work and the shops. We also owe a great debt of thanks to all the drivers for keeping this service going.

We will update the website whenever there are any changes that affect the service.
