From Monday 27th July 2020, all passengers on buses in Wales must wear a face covering when onboard our vehicles, face coverings must also be worn when inside transport hubs in Wales which includes bus stations, interchanges or travel shops.
- Please remember to bring a face covering for your journey as without one you will be unable to travel
- A face covering can be very simple, like a scarf or bandana that ties behind the head to give a snug fit. It just needs to cover your mouth and nose
- Please put your face covering on before boarding the bus or entering a transport hub and wash your hands or use hand sanitiser before putting it on
- Please wear your face covering throughout the duration of your journey, including when disembarking the bus
- If you need a drink or to take medication while travelling or when inside a transport hub please do so quickly and be mindful of others
- To keep everyone safe please store a used face covering in a plastic bag and take it home
The Welsh government has issued guidance that can be found here.
All of our drivers in Wales have been advised to inform our customers who are not wearing a face covering on boarding the bus, that they are required to do so by law, throughout their entire journey, unless they are exempt. If a customer is not exempt and refuses to wear a face covering, then our drivers have been instructed to explain to the customer that they are breaking the law and that the police have powers to impose a fine of up to £100. Our drivers report all failures to comply with Government policy to their Depot Management team to allow us to closely monitor the situation and advise the authorities.
We have also adopted the policy of all customers being required to wear a face mask onboard in Wales, unless they are exempt.
Following an Equalities Impact Assessment, exemptions will apply to those with:
- Breathing difficulties and other respiratory conditions
- Conditions effecting their dexterity, meaning they are not able to put on a face covering
- Mental health conditions such as anxiety or panic disorders
- Other non-visible disabilities such as autism
- Cognitive impairments, including dementia, who may not understand or remember the need to wear a face covering
- Visual impairments, with a restricted field of vision, particularly if any residual vision is at the lower edge of the normal field of view
- Impairments which would make it difficult to put on or take off a face covering safely, accurately, consistently or without pain
The exemptions also apply to those who rely on lip reading. This would include carers who are travelling with someone for whom a face covering will inhibit communication
Young children under the age of 11 or children on dedicated school transport services are exempt.
Yes, we have a range of Journey Assistance cards that are available for anyone that needs support when travelling. We have added two new cards to the pack for you, Cards can be downloaded here.
It is really important to us that we continue to support all of our customers who wish to use our services.
Whilst seats within 2 metres of the driver are currently taped off, wheelchair spaces will always remain available. Rest assured, if you require support with boarding our buses, our drivers are following the below steps to ensure social distancing and your safety are maintained whilst they are providing you with assistance:
- The driver will wear a face covering and sanitise their hands before leaving their cab
- The driver will politely ask you to maintain a 1 metre plus distance whilst they put the ramp in place
- The driver will limit the time they are within 1 metres plus of you to ensure this is kept to an absolute minimum
In exceptional circumstances where the driver is unable to leave their cab to offer you assistance, they will politely explain why they are unable to help you.
Colleg Gwent bus passes are accepted.
Transport for Wales concessionary bus passes are accepted.

My partner and I have just returned from a turkey and tinsel break in Torquay absolutely brilliant break, brilliant hotel, great food and entertainment. Our driver for the week was Stuart and he looked after everyone from start to finish. Thank you can’t wait for our next breakTeressa Brown11/19/2016
What a lovely change to get a bus and be greeted with a smile, absolutely lovely service. No rush in the driver waited for everyone to be seated before pulling off, unlike other diver leaving you to be jolted into the seat. Was kind and even saw him offer a woman with a cough a bottle of water. Took his time and was actually aware he had customer in the back unlike other busses I’ve been on. This was today on the 63 from usk to Pontypool around 1:30, what a lovely change, keep It up!�Felix Collins11/15/2016
Went on a day trip to Stratford upon avon yesterday and it was brilliant from start to finish. And a special shout out to Eddie the driver who was just perfect. He was friendly and informative and just a genuine nice guy. He made the trip extra special and nothing was too much bother. Top marks for a fantastic memorable day out 🙂Christianne Hart9/08/2016
Friendly helpful drivers Drivers on service 30 always friendly.very helpful to disabled and people with push chairs.Buses a little careworn but always clean.davidmansell2/22/2017
Their days out are one of the highlights of my year. Phil Anslow’s local bus services – in particular the X1 are first class, but even better are their days out. Early in the year the programme of dates and destinations comes out, and with pen poised I go through it to select possible venues to book. I have never been disappointed, the value for money is incredible,and with a little planning it’s amazing how much you can cram into the time available.Stella H2/18/2020
Went on day trip to Looe , Cornwall, it was a very good day, the driver was brilliant, very friendly, polite, helpful and with 1st class punctuality, my 3 friends and I would like to say thanks.Christine Oakey5/30/2017
Superbly driven by a very helpful driver who assisted us with the wheelchair. Concerned about the children on the school trip having to wait for the bus at the end of the day, he made sure he was back early to collect us. Thank you very much.Anna Britten6/14/2016Teri-lee Vaughan7/23/2017
I recently hired a coach to take a group of senior citizens to Weston super mare. They have not stopped talking about how easy it was to get on the coach (the steps are lower and not so steep) and how comfortable it was too. I have now hired a coach for four more trips for them.
Have also gone on day trips with a friend and cannot fault this company. In addition the drivers I have met on these trips are brilliant. Would recommend Phil Anslow to anyone.Maureen Gingell5/27/2016
Went today to wells and street had a lovely time. Bryn our driver was lovely would recommend anslow trips as they are reasonably priced .Had a lovely day out.Joanne Morton5/30/2018
I used the no6 ty canol service today it is the first time I have used a Phil Anslow bus and I will never use the stage coach again if I can help it! Your driver was lovely and polite, my 3yo loved the fact there were seatbelts on the bus as did I! Your driver even waited at 1 stop for an elderly lady who was rushing to the bus stop (I have seen stage coach drivers wait for passengers to nearly make it then pull away laughing). Your driver even waited until we were sat down and my daughter had her seatbelt on before pulling out of the bus stop. And to top it all off your cheaper!!! What more could we want?

What a great Company!!!Richard6/16/2021
Booked Phil Anslow to transport guests who had travelled from all over UK at my daughters wedding from Glen yr Afon Hotel to church in Beaufort.

I just want to say Thank you. I am so humbled to know that yesterday at 12:20 my 85 year old gran was waiting in Blaenavon high street, for the forgeside bus and she was just telling me that a young driver came off the bus down the street to help my gran carry her bags and help her on the bus.
She told me that never in the whole time she has lived in Blaenavon that a young lad has never gone out of there way for her, like this guy did.
She wanted me to post this so hopefully that young lad can know how greatfull she is.
So thank you. ������Kellie-Anne Redman4/15/2018Alyson Hayes5/02/2016
I would just like to say a big thank you to Darren who took us to the Harry Potter studios tour today. What a pleasure he was. Before I got on I told him my children had no idea where they were going as it was a surprise for them. Unlike most coach drivers he made sure he gave nothing away when he spoke to all the passengers about the trip and he made an effort to talk to all the children. We had a fantastic day and I know that Darren had started the day off the way it was continued. Brilliant. 5***** to his service.Donna Hughes8/28/2017
Went to Weston last night with this company. Our Driver was Terry I think not 100% but he was fantastic I would highly recommend booking day trips with them I will be more often that’s for sure
Thank you �Andrew Smith11/11/2017
