Pembrokeshire Bus Services - A perfect walking partner
Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority sees better public transport as a key way to provide a better, greener experience for our visitors and local residents. We are a partner in Pembrokeshire Greenways, a project to develop the use of sustainable transport for recreation in the countryside and to promote walking, cycling, bus and train travel.

Getting to Pembrokeshire by Public Transport
With trains to Fishguard, Haverfordwest and Pembroke Dock as well as coach and ferry services, there are good options allowing you to leave your car at home. Some accommodation providers will pick you up from the train station so ask when you’re booking.

Getting around Pembrokeshire by Public Transport
Pembrokeshire has a very good network of bus services, which run between every town in the county, six days a week. Getting to the coast and into the more popular countryside areas by bus is simple, but please note that some rural locations have less frequent services or community transport services to support their needs.
The train service in Pembrokeshire is a useful link between towns and a scenic way of getting into the countryside, especially along the south coast. Greenways have developed walks from each railway station, giving you more excuses to hop on board!

Pembrokeshire Coastal 'Walkers' Bus
Accessing the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park and walking the Pembrokeshire Coast Path National Trail has been made even easier, thanks to the introduction of the Pembrokeshire 'Puffin' Coastal Bus Services.
Pembrokeshire Coastal Buses are local bus services that travel up and down the National Park coastline, ensuring that the entire length of the 186 mile (299km) Pembrokeshire Coast Path National Trail, from St Dogmaels to Amroth, is accessible by public transport. This enables you to walk the Coast Path in one direction without having to re-trace your steps.
Have a look at 'Coastal Buses' and 'Timetables' for more information.
Avoid re-tracing your steps and use the bus; a perfect walking partner!
Community Walkers Buses
Complementing the coastal bus services is a new generation of community buses, helping both locals and visitors gain access to and from the more remote areas of the National Park.
The 'Preseli Green Dragon' provides public transport to the Preseli Hills and surrounding communities and runs a 'walkers bus' between Crymych Mynachlog-Ddu and Rosebush on Tuesdays, Wednesday and Thursday during July , August and September 2009. Check!
Day Tripper Attractions Bus - Tenby
In the summer the 'Day Tripper' attractions bus enables day-trippers to get to nine attractions from the Tenby / Saundersfoot area without the need to take a car.
The Day Tripper is fantastic value at £7 for a family of four, and all the attractions involved in the scheme are offering great discounts to bus users.
Boat buses at St Justinians
St Justinians, with its spectacular setting, has long been used as a departure point for boat trips to Ramsey and the more offshore islands. Now people wanting to take a trip to the islands are requested to catch the Celtic Coaster from St Davids to St Justinians and help us improve access difficulties at this remote and cherished location.
