People across Cardiff are getting essential bus travel advice as 10,000 runners prepare to lace up their shoes for this year’s Cardiff 10k on Sunday 1 September.
Cardiff Bus is alerting customers to city centre service diversions and bus stop changes which will come into place during Sunday’s annual charitable run.
The event, which is due to start at Cardiff Civic Centre from 10am, will see runners flood the capital, with roads including Cathedral Road, Castle Street, Wood Street and Westgate Street, all set to close at various times from 8.45am to 12.30pm.
The Baycar 6 will depart from Customhouse Street (south side) from 8.45am to 11.45am and then Wyndham Arcade from 11:45am to 12:30pm; the 8 and 9 to Cardiff Bay/Sports Village will leave from Customhouse Street (south side) or Taffs Mead Embankment between 8.45am and 12.30pm while the 8 & 9 to Heath Hospital will start from Taffs Mead Embankment (and run via Bute Terrace) from 9:15am to 11:45am.
