CityFox Group through its FoxStar brand has launched a ticketing deal with Phil Anslow Coaches allowing customers to benefit from a cheaper ticket between Newport and Cwmbran for just £2.50 return on the 24X service by showing their FoxStar ticket.

Since launching at the start of December, Foxstar’s ‘The One’ service has proved highly popular with the residents of Bettws estate, providing a fast and direct link into Newport city centre that has already carried over 30,000 passengers.

CityFox Group Managing Director Rhys Hand says: “Amid all the positive feedback about our vehicles, service and drivers, we have had a number of requests for a link to Cwmbran.

“With Phil Anslow Coaches’ 24X service providing a frequent, high quality link between the two centres, it seemed an obvious tie up.”
