Walking and cycling

Walking and cycling

Get active and walk or cycle

Please walk or cycle whenever you can, particularly for short journeys, to reduce pressure on public transport.

Keep Wales Safe 

The current guidance from the Welsh Government is to stay at home and only leave home if your journey is essential.

Public transport should only be used for limited purposes which include:  

  • to go to work if you can’t work at home.
  • to go to school, college or for education  
  • for essential shopping or medical needs  
  • to provide essential care 
  • to escape a risk of illness or injury, such as for victims or people at risk of domestic abuse

Please do not leave home and travel at all if you have any Coronavirus symptoms.   

You can check the Welsh Government’s guidance here 

Please think carefully about:  

  • the journeys you make  
  • the people you meet 
  • travelling to areas where coronavirus rates are high  

If you do still need to use public transport for essential journeys, please help us keep the network as safe as possible by following our Travel Safer guidance.  

Cycles on public transport

Physical distancing is limiting space on public transport.  Please don’t bring your bike onto public transport unless you:

  • need it for your job
  •  can fold it up to save space 

If you cycle to the station, please use the cycle storage at or near our stations where available. Find out more about cycle parking facilities at our railway stations.

Walk or cycle for short journeys 

Could you walk or cycle instead of using public transport in these difficult times?  It would reduce the pressure on public transport, and you’ll get your daily exercise while you’re travelling.

Your local council may also be installing temporary facilities to make it easier to walk and cycle. You can check what’s happening where you live. 

The National Cycle Network

The National Cycle Network is a UK-wide network of signed paths and routes for walking and cycling.  

Public cycle schemes 

You can hire a cycle from a public cycle scheme, such as Nextbike in Cardiff, if you don’t own one yourself.  Currently they’re only available in some parts of Wales.  

Find out more about using a Nextbike safely.

Maintain physical distancing and wash your hands

Please try to maintain physical distancing (staying 2 metres apart from others) when you’re walking or cycling, for example when approaching or passing other pedestrians or waiting at crossings and traffic lights.

Please wash your hands for at least 20 seconds or use hand sanitiser before and after cycling.
