As the capital of Wales, Cardiff is well served by regular bus services from various parts of Wales as well as across the rest of the UK. National Express runs several buses to Cardiff, including direct services from London, Manchester, Birmingham, Bristol, Norwich and Exeter, as well as Swansea and many towns in the north of Wales. Flixbus also operates similar bus services to and from most large cities in England, Wales and Scotland. Welsh coach company TrawsCymru run a service to other parts of the country such as Aberystwyth and several parts of West Wales.
A stone's throw from the Millennium Stadium, the central hub of transport is Cardiff Central. Located on Wood Street, right in the heart of the city, the bus terminal and railway station make for an important interchange point for bus and train services. Those travelling on to Cardiff Airport can change here for regular direct bus services.
