Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Many bus services are now operating a reduced service. We advise you to check your journey in advance with Traveline.

Face coverings are compulsory for everyone travelling on public transport in Wales. Face coverings should be worn for the duration of the journey on public transport. This means they must be worn from when you get on the vehicle and they must stay in place until you get off.

Bwcabus fixed route services have been temporarily suspended. Bwcabus will continue to operate a pre-booked service only.

We are not running any road safety courses until further notice.

Please continue to visit our Newsroom for the latest information. You can also follow us on Facebook and Twitter.

A vehicle may be treated as abandoned if it has been left in an area for a period of time or has no registered keeper. It may not be taxed and may also be in a dangerous condition.

If we believe a vehicle has been abandoned a DVLA check may be carried out to find the current keeper details.  If it is considered that the vehicle is in a dangerous condition it is treated as a priority removal and will be removed within 24 hours. Abandoned vehicles on private land are subject to a 15-day notice period usually after consulting with the land owner or agent.

To help us deal with the abandoned vehicle quickly please tell us the following information about the vehicle:

  • Make, model and colour
  • Vehicle registration number (If the registration plates are missing this may be found on the tax disc if displayed)
  • Condition of the vehicle (detailing any vandalism)
  • Tax disc expiry date, if displayed
  • Exact location of the vehicle
  • How long the vehicle has been abandoned
  • Any other information, e.g. who the owner or user may be.

If you wish to report an untaxed vehicle contact the Vehicle Registration Office, Untaxed Vehicles, Long View Road, Swansea, SA99 1AN.

If you think the vehicle has been stolen or if it is causing an obstruction, please report it to Dyfed-Powys Police, on 101.
