Weekdays except Bank Holiday Mondays
There are four buses per hour from Swansea (Oxford St) as far as Oystermouth Square and Newton Road.
There are three buses per hour (four in July & August) to Langland Corner (for Langland Bay)
There is one bus an hour direct to Limeslade, the Big Apple and the George. This service runs right up until late evening with the last return to Swansea from Limeslade at 22.57; Oystermouth Mumbles Rd at 23.05, ideal for a evening meal and drinks without driving worries!
In July and August, buses return to Caswell Bay; due to the last two years’ poor summers, there will only be a once hourly service this summer. So pray for sunshine and perhaps we can persuade First to resume half hourly service in 2010!!
Sundays and Bank Holiday Mondays
There are three buses per hour for most of the day, all terminating at Oystermouth Square.
Good value tickets
First Day Swansea City tickets permit unlimited travel for a day on Mumbles and Pennard routes and throughout Swansea City. At £3.50 (child £2.50; family £8.00) they represent really good value for money!
