The primary mode of public transportation in Cardiff is the bus system. You can look up bus schedules on the Cardiff Bus (BWS CAERDYDD) site . This is a widely used system that is a convenient alternative to a private car.
Another available form of transportation through the city is via taxi or hired car. The city has 400 taxis and 600 private hire vehicles. Taxis can be hailed on the street, whereas private hire cars cannot, and must be reserved beforehand. Cardiff is not like New York, for example, in its taxi use – it is very common to pre-hire a vehicle, rather than to spontaneously hire a driver on the side of the road. Reserving is often your best bet, in Cardiff, if you are not going to take the bus. See the Taxis & Rental Cars section for more info. on getting a taxi or private hire vehicle in Cardiff.
