    Newport is desperately in need of a bus service to Abergavenny even if only one day a week (Tuesday) and A service to Ebbw Vale too (also one or two days a week would be better than nothing!). Newport transports 2 hourly bus to Monmouth is also abysmal, sure Phil Anslow could do better! 👍🏼

    Normally an exceptionally reliable operator.

    Driver on today’s 17:00 X1 came nowhere near that standard. Pulls onto the stand in Brynmawr at 17:00, by which time five passengers waiting for this service had walked to the next stand for the Stagecoach X15.

    When he dropped off his passengers, the last person to alight was obviously a friend of his, as they stood talking for about five minutes (at which point he was already late). Then he got off the bus and continued his conversation whilst rolling and then smoking, a cigarette.

    At the ASDA roundabout, he slammed on his brakes so that my bags spilled all over the floor. I accept that the brakes can be fierce on Enviro type vehicles, but part of the skill of driving is to know your vehicle.

    Finally, he stopped just before the Cwmcelyn turn off to send a text.

    Please could Terry Wybern (if he hasn’t retired as Inspector) have a friendly chat with the guy and bring him up to speed on how the job SHOULD be done.

    I’ve rated you as a five based on long term overall experience of your services. At a time when Stagecoach are cutting back their services (Evening X15 cut to two hourly below Abertillery and X22 taken off) there is a gap in the market that Anslows can fill, particularly given the differential in fare structure.

  • 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.

    Great trip to Gloucester yesterday – the bus arrived on time and was even decorated for Christmas! Nick was a very professional, friendly driver who got us there and back safely and even gave us a little toot ‘goodbye’ as we got off the bus! Excellent value for money and wouldn’t hesitate to book another trip with you!

    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 🙂

  • 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!�

    My daughter left her phone on the bus on Saturday along with her debit card and Id. Contacted the office at 9.00am and by half eleven we had the phone back. Mr Anslow brought it to Bulwark to save us a journey to head office. Very grateful to him as I’m sure not every bus company would be that obliging. Many thanks.

    I have used Anslow Coaches for the last 4 years to take Abergavenny Bowlers to Torquay in November on a bowls tour. We are about 40 in number and never a complaint. Coach is always on time, always clean, great driving staff, Sue in the office is brilliant to deal with. Already booked for November 2017.

    I catch the x1 service to Work every day I spend £20 a week on the bus for a weekly ticket and I have to say it’s an absolute pleasure to do so. I have never once had a bad experience on your buses most of your drivers are absolutely brilliant on more than one occasion I’ve witnessed them go out of there way to please the customers like only today one of your drivers seen a little old lady rushing and panicking with a Zimmer frame because she wasn’t at the bus stop instead of Just driving past like stagecoach would he stopped right by her asked her if she needed help getting onto the bus, told her to sit down and scan her pass when she got off and didn’t pull off until she sat down I see this all the time from most of your drivers. Most of them don’t get the credit they deserve would never go back to catching stagecoach buses �
