South Wales and West

Welcome to the South Wales and West (SWW) Branch of the OS

Our branch area roughly aligns with the South Wales and the Western Traffic Areas, or from Aberystwyth to Land's End and across to Bournemouth. Such a wide and varied area does mean that our Bulletin, which is published 5 or 6 times a year, is always packed. Our editorial team records changes from operators large and small, often explaining why these changes took place. But the Bulletin doesn't stop there: each issue contains articles on current and historical operations in our area, reports on our days out, and the chance for members to give their slant on what's going on.

Forthcoming events are listed on our calendar page.


Bristol Metrobus: First Bristol will start operating the m3 Metrobus Service on Tuesday 29th May. The service operates from Emersons Green via Lyde Green P&R, Bristol & Bath Science Park, Emerald Park Industrial Estate and UWE to Cabot Circus and the city centre. The initial timetable for the summer will operate every 20 minutes from 0600 until 1900, and every 30 minutes until 2100 Mondays to Saturdays.  Free travel on m3 will be offered until 9th June. 

Route m2 from Long Ashton via Temple Meads to the city centre is now due to start in autumn 2018, and route m1, from Hengrove to Cribbs Causeway, will start in January 2019.
