Anyone wanting to travel from Cardiff to London has the chance to do so for free, but they will have to book quickly as the offer only applies for two days at the end of November.

NAT Group, a south Wales bus company has joined forces with a national intercity technology platform to launch the new Cardiff to London coach service with passengers invited to travel without charge during its launch period.

This begins on 29 November 2019 with the service starting in Pontypridd and Treforest, then stopping at Cardiff and Newport before travelling direct to London.

The service will initially operate from Thursday to Monday (inclusive).

Passengers can book at and will be able to travel without charge on the first two days (29 and 30 November).

In October, Snap — a premium technology platform for coach operators – asked south Wales residents to nominate suggested new services that NAT Group would then operate.

Out of the thousands of people that voted, Cardiff was easily the most popular originating location and London the most popular destination. The new service will be the only direct connection between Pontypridd, Treforest and London.

Managing Director of NAT Group, Adam Keen, said: “We’re very excited to launch this new service connecting South Wales with London. Initially, we will run the service up to three times a day and, based on Snap’s technology, can respond to demand adding additional services if needed utilising our modern fleet of vehicles and large pool of coach drivers.”

Snap Chief Executive Thomas Ableman explained that journeys would be simple and stress-free with convenient local pick-ups, live tracking and dynamic ETA (estimated time of arrival) updates.
