Happy birthday wishes are sent to Newport resident, Harry Polloway, who celebrated his 100th birthday on 19th December. A card from the Queen, and a birthday party at Hilton Newport, helped celebrate this landmark birthday.


With the opening of Friars Walk and the chance to check out new shops in Newport, residents are being reminded about the service operated by Newport Bus where passengers can pre-book a journey.

Known as DRT (Demand Responsive Transport) the service has been offered for a couple of years now in Whitson/Wetlands/West Nash area (DRT63) and Bishton/Redwick/ Llanwern Village (DRT62).

And from July 2015 the service started to cover St Brides/ Marshfield/Castleton (DRT31).

There are four drop off points – at Asda in Duffryn, Newport Bus Station, Tesco on Cardiff Road and the Royal Gwent Hospital.

Demand Responsive Transport is a form of pre-booked transport using smaller vehicles than buses but with the customer in control.

Transport only runs when the customer demands.

Customers can book a seat by calling 01633 211202 between 9am and 5pm and bookings need to be made 24 hours in advance, although every effort will be made to accommodate passengers making bookings at shorter notice.

The bus will be in operation Monday to Saturday between 7.30am and 6.30pm. A pick up point and time are agreed when you pre-book and the journey may be shared with other passengers.

Payment is made in the same way as you would on any bus service as tickets will be given. All Newport Transports’ weekly, monthly and annual smartcard travel passes will be accepted.

Your journey will start at a bus stop nearest to your house and passengers can be dropped at one of four locations including Newport Bus Station, Tesco, Cardiff Road, the Royal Gwent Hospital and Asda, Duffryn too.

The service will only pick up prebooked customers at bus stops.
