Cardiff Travel During Major Events
Cardiff plays host to many prestigious events both sporting and in the performing arts.
Due to the increased traffic and parking requirements generated by these events, Cardiff Council has implemented a strategy to help visitors by providing special parking arrangements with a number of supervised Park & Ride facilities.
You can find the official Cardiff Council page dedicated to travel during major Cardiff events on the Cardiff.gov website.
Often major events in Cardiff will mean the central roads are closed and open to pedestrians only.
Due to the city centre road closures, the public are advised that ALL buses travelling in, out and around the city WILL be affected. More information is available from www.traffic-wales.com; Traveline Cymru on 0871 200 22 33 or www.traveline-cymru.info; Cardiff Bus at www.cardiffbus.com.
