Cardiff’s 3-year old “Temporary” bus stop!

In August 2015, the bus stop for National Express coaches was shifted to its temporary location outside Sophia Gardens. Awaiting the new location, the bus stop has been here for 3 years and it doesn’t look like it’s going anywhere anytime soon.

It was originally supposed to be shifted to the permanent location by 2017. After a quick chat with one of the Customer Service Advisers of National Express, Anthony, he says, “We are now told that the bus stop will be relocated to its permanent address by 2020.”

This temporary bus stop is located at one of the most beautiful gardens in the city, Sophia Gardens. Sophia Gardens is the largest park in Riverside, Cardiff.
