    Although be careful with the BayCar service, it's very easy to miss a stop and end up in completely the wrong place if you don't know exactly where you're going, the area around the Bay is quite sprawling, with busy roads! Although this statement is mainly based on my one experience where me and a friend got off one stop too late and had to cross a roundabout on foot.... I've walked the road between the two in the past (in the day), and as far as I remember it took a good half hour, bit of a trek, but quite straightforward.

    How much are buses (single/return journeys) generally?
    I generally buy a day to go for £3 then you can catch as many buses as you want throughout the day and night.

    Reading through this thread kind of sets my mind at peace, but still i'd like to ask, if i get to Cardiff Central at about 3.30 pm do i stand a chance of turning up to collect my key by 5 pm?
    Definitely - it's only a 10-15 minute walk from Central to the main university buildings.

    QUOTE2

    Yes that is true!
    E.g. If you want to purchase a day to go for £3 an only got a £5 note and put that in to pay for the ticket, then there are two outcomes you either lose the £2 or the driver can give you a voucher which will allow you to go to there Cardiff Central office and collect the £2 but that is so much hassle :|.

    I've never understood why they don't have change myself.-They give you it on the trains but not the bus.-Weird I now.
    It's so inconvenient, I either go in to the nearest shop to get change or ask someone on the bus stop to exchange a note for change.

    If you don't fancy constantly handling change you can get a monthly bus pass. It's worth it if you are going to be using the bus a lot otherwise if your not going to be it will work out to expensive.

    I'll probably just do that as I'm car-less.

    Weird, quoting thing is messing up.

    Well I now it's £45 for one months usuage.

    I don't see why you would need one though because like a lot of people said a lot of things are in walking distance. Depending on were you want to go.
