This service has been facing increasing pressure and as a result struggles to maintain time especially during busy times. Therefore to improve the overall reliability of the service it is to be withdrawn from Keswick Crescent (for alternative services to Keswick Crescent please see the new service 46 and 47).
Updated: The successful delivery of the Gydnia Way road improvement scheme together with improved residential parking may see the service return in the not too distant future. As the road works in Prince Rock have not caused as much delay as expected we have decided to leave the service 50 operating through Keswick Crescent for a six month trial during which time we hope to see major improvements to the parking situation around the crescent Thank you for the feedback

Service 50A is to be replaced with Service 50 and as such will no longer operate into Cattedown evenings and Sundays. (This is due to the closure of the bridge of Gydinia Way on Elliot Road) Once the works are completed then a review of the Service 45/A and the Service 50 will take place to see if a return to Cattedown Elliott Road is viable
