The Grass Routes transport scheme is a responsive flexible bus service that makes trips on request.

It operates low floor, fully accessible vehicles with volunteer drivers.

The scheme is operated on a membership basis and is open to all members of the community.

Details of scheme

To book a journey on the bus, members of the scheme need only call a free phone number that operates from 9am to 4.30pm.

Call 0800 085 8015 at least 24 hours in advance, to book your journey with the Grass Routes support team.

There are scheduled routes for each day between main towns, which are flexible depending on demand.

The bus operates between 9am and 4.30pm depending on route, Monday to Friday, serving all the main Monmouthshire towns and outlying areas.

The cost of membership is a one off payment of £5 per household of up to four members.

With effect from the 1st of July 2016, there is a new price structure of £3.00 for a single journey and £5.00 for a return journey made on the same day. There is a 50% discount for under 16’s.

Concessionary passes are now accepted on all daily Grass Routes services.

Our Grass Routes policy is available on request.
