The main operator of public transport in Merthyr Tydfil is Stagecoach. The company operate local services as well as services out of the County Borough such as Newtown and Cardiff.
Additional local services are provided by Mintax and John's Travel.
These bus services are operated along commercially viable routes at such times as operators feel they can make a profit.
Where there is an area where no commercial service is available, but the Council considers there is unmet need, the Integrated Transport Unit then invites tenders from local bus operators for a specified level of service. These services are subsidised by the Council and are run under contract to Merthyr Tydfil Council.
